The Scout Report first featured HistoryLink in 2002, when this "first and largest encyclopedia of community history created expressly for the Internet" was five years old and focused specifically on the history of King County, Washington. Today, HistoryLink has broadened its scope to include the history of all of Washington state and has added a number of educational resources while continuing to expand its extensive online encyclopedia. As of this writing, the encyclopedia features 7,382 essays. Visitors who are generally interested in Washington's history may want to start on the site's homepage, which features a weekly "This Week Then" column and highlights essays that have been added to the encyclopedia in the past week. Visitors can also Search or Explore the encyclopedia via an interactive timeline, by topic, or by Washington state county. One highlight of HistoryLink is a collection of Slideshows, which can be accessed under the Explore tab. Meanwhile, instructors will find detailed, printable lesson plans - along with accompanying readings and PowerPoint presentations - in the Education section. These lessons are designed for elementary, middle, and high school students.
