Fun: Try Out the New Harper's Index

I cannot remember ever reading Harper's Magazine, but I sure am enjoying their new online searchable index. What do you do? Start typing in a word (anything: swimming, horse, DNA, whatever!) and see a list of random facts pertaining to that word. The librarian in you will love that each fact lists the source. The Web 2.0 fan in you will love that each fact can be emailed, shared, bookmarked, or Twittered. The reference librarian in you will be giddy with excitement when the next school child comes to you asking for three random facts about Finland.

Enjoy the Harper's Index!
