Historical Website Review essay

The website is devoted to one of the most famous, interesting and influential Presidents in the history of the United States of America. There is no doubt that Franklin D. Roosevelt was a significant personality, who remains to be well-known all over the world.

It seems that the whole life of such a magnificent person can be found on the http://www.fdrlibrary.marist.edu/ website. The pictures, documents, different diplomatic files and other interesting and useful information are here.

You can search for the documents online, which were signed by Franklin D. Roosevelt.

If you have a specific question, answer for which you cannot find in the library or Internet, you can easily write a letter to the website organizers. The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum is one of ten presidential libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. That is why you can be sure that all the given on the website information is true and checked.

Even if you are just wondering, who Franklin D. Roosevelt was, there is information for curious. You can find puzzles about the President’s activity and life. Even life of Scottish terrier and favorite pet Fala of the President can be found here.

What I liked a lot was that this website is not only informative but also educational. I found helpful information about the research writing. Everything is described – from the topic choosing and clarifying the task till the developing critical thinking skills and using the sources. I was also impressed that audio information is stored and is accessible for the researchers.

Among the weaknesses I found that sometimes it is difficult to see the structure of the website. I suppose that the better organization of the given information should be done, because it makes work with the website easier.

Also when I entered the website, I thought the front page was stuffed with the advertisement and only after a closer look I figure out it was just a preview of the coming events and new books.

As for me, there was nothing bad written about Franklin D. Roosevelt, which is strange. I wanted to see a real person with advantages and disadvantages. But he is famous for having been an example in everything – family, state affairs and relationships with people.

Maybe he was the way he is described in books: reliable, wise, loyal, loving, smart, always sober-minded and sensible. He left an impression of the man, who can be called a Person.
