Research Modules

TIMEA not only makes available an archive of electronic texts, images, and maps, but also research guides and case studies that explore the research process and set TIMEA materials in context. These guides are made available through Connexions, a rapidly growing collection of free scholarly materials and a powerful set of free software tools to help authors publish and collaborate;
instructors rapidly build and share custom courses; and learners explore the links among concepts, courses, and disciplines.
