Memfacts is a new website from the City of Memphis that contains a lot of statistics about the city. The headers of Public Safety, Neighborhoods, Youth, Economy, and Government are a click away from providing data on multiple subjects. These include robberies and burglaries, Fire response times, EMS response times, crime, employment, household income, GDP growth, poverty, code compliance, pothole repair, delinquent weed cutting, and much more.
The Collections Search Center from the Smithsonian Institution allows a “search over 9.3 million records of museum objects, archives and library materials including more than 1.4 million online media files” (from the site). A Google-like search allows for a perusal of what is in the collections by keyword. Or, the Browse by Category button shows the Art & Design, History & Culture, and Science & Technology collections. A search can also be done for the items on exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution Museums.
