Draft of Checklist of Electronic Resources (Version 5)

Perhaps "America's Historic Newspapers" could also be listed as
"Early American Newspapers", its former but still often used
name.  And I wonder if its Part I might usefully also be listed in
the section "ending before 1800", which is its main coverage
(although it does extend to 1820); someone with interest in the 18th
century would not find it.

The last above raises a more general question:  with your division of
eras, doesn't someone interested only in the 18th century have to
look at the year coverage of all the resources listed in the
"extending to 20th century" section?  Perhaps each century should
have its own section, with resource names duplicated as necessary?

Also, does "Evans Digital Edition" mean what I call "Early American
Imprints"?  Perhaps for the user's convenience the latter name could be added.
