Research Resources - President's Day Special Edition

You get a bonus this month. Not one, but TWO posts on Research Resources from me. Aren't you thrilled? :) And in honor of today being President's Day observed, we're doing a theme-related posted for the resources.

Now, I'm here with these top 5 resources this month:

American Presidents: Life Portraits - Site complements CSPAN television series of the same name. Includes brief facts about each president, plus video clips from the series.

Favorite Foods of American Presidents - Being the Commander in Chief is no easy task. So how do they unwind after a long day? With a delicious meal of course. Celebrate Presidents' Day by whipping up one of their beloved foods. From the White House to your house, these are tried and true American favorites.

Life Advice from our Presidents - Some of them hated it. Some of them loved it. All of them learned from it. In honor of Presidents' Day, we've rounded up a list of some of the best advice from 32 presidents past and present on how to do and be your best, no matter how challenging your job is.

POTUS: Presidents Of The United States - In this resource you will find background information, election results, cabinet members, notable events, and some points of interest on each of the presidents. Links to biographies, historical documents, audio and video files, and other presidential sites are also included.

The Presidents: The White House - Short history of the U.S. Presidency, along with biographical sketches and portraits of all the presidents to date. From the official White House site.
