Chicago History Online is another supplement to The Chicago History Journal. It will be the site of the link lists now in the right column of the main blog. I decided to create this satellite site because as the Journal grows and more links are added, the blog will become too cluttered and load slower and slower.
Posts on Chicago History Online will simply be announcements of updates and the addition of new links. It will be somewhat of a “no frills” site. As of today, the current links are primarily on one page, “Links.” That will change. My intention is to separate the sets by categories – People, Events, Places, etc. I think this will provide for easier navigation.
With the addition of Chicago History Online, available links will be simply listed on the Journal and linked to the appropriate link page on this site. It will take some time to get things sorted out, but I believe that in the long run it will be beneficial for those looking for more information on a particular topic.
Thank you to all the Chicago History Journal supporters who have made the site so successful and welcome to Chicago History Online.
