The View free online?

During the cleanup of my paper library with the View magazines I noticed that a lot of articles, including the PFD’s, of The View are indexed by Google and available online. I am not sure if this is a mistake or a seasonal gift from Wellesley Information Services but if you search online most of the older articles appear in the search results.

Older? “What is their use?” you may wonder. Most techniques described are obsolete or a sin, but others are so general (performance, programming best practices) or describe the core (2)of Notes that they are still interesting and fun to read.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

In case you wonder how to obtain the titles of the articles that WIS has published you can check for example this site.

Some search tips:

  • Enter titles case sensitive.
  • In case the PDF file does not appear in the results add ‘PDF’ as keyword or use Google Advanced Search where you can specify file type.
  • The locations VOLR6.nsf or viewr5.nsf are pretty unique keywords.
