2. Many of you may be tempted to download or print out the materials that will be offered here, but I suggest that you do this with caution. Much of this materials will be interactive; that is, it will contain automatic connections to useful supporting material, and these connections will be of no use when it is downloaded or printed out.
3. This will be a site "under construction." That means that new materials and links will be added during the course of the semester. It will also be a means of communication between us. From time to time, I will be making announcements and and putting up temporary materials that I think may be of help to you, and you will be able to send me a message simply by clicking on my name wherever it appears. So you should plan on connecting to the main page on a regular basis.
4. One last point. Lecture sessions will be devoted to answering questions you might have, providing additional structure to the material you have studied, and discussing some of the major issues and concepts involved in our picture of the past. This means that you will need to cover the assigned material before class if you are to get any good out of what I have to offer you. You will need to become adept at using the web, but that is something that will come with practice.
