1. Review one online database such as: http://www.archives.gov http://www.ellisislandimmigrants.org http://newdeal.feri.org/index.htm http://www.pro.gov.uk/ http://nationalarchives.nic.in/ a. Write examples of data and information related to the site you choose. b. State why you believe data collections of this type could be important. a. The website www.archives.gov holds many types of data and information. The website holds records pertaining to many United States historical events, giving detailed information of how and when they happened. Military veteran records can be found, like the names of soldiers, where and when they served, and services offered to them. Documents containing different lesson plans and activities for teachers to give students can be found here. Information on where someone can travel and what they can see and what activities they can do when they get there is also offered. b. Data collections of this type are important because they can and do preserve a certain way of life. Just from this one website a person can research and learn a lot about the United States’ history. Websites like this can also make certain aspects of life easier. If someone wanted to travel and wanted some information on where to visit and what to do could find that information from this website. Without databases; information that we as people hold dear, could be lost forever. 2. Give examples of how data becomes information for these two industries: film/movie hospital/healthcare A movie can be considered a piece of information when all of the “takes” or “cuts” are pieced together.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
