    Utopia: The Search for the Ideal Society in the Western World
     From the front page of this New York Public Library (NYPL) exhibit,
    users can access three sections: Exhibition, Programming, and
    Resources. The Exhibition itself offers sample representations of
    ideal societies arranged in four main sections, beginning with
    Sources (ancient, medieval, and biblical utopias), ranging through
    Other Worlds (More to the Enlightenment) and Utopia in History (the
    revolutionary age through the nineteenth century), and finishing with
    Dreams and Nightmares (twentieth-century utopias and dystopias). To
    the left of each image are options to read more about or print the
    item (and, in some cases, an option to enlarge). The latter two
    sections offer a number of resources for those looking beyond the
    exhibit for more information. Programming lists related events
    scheduled throughout New York, and Resources offers annotated
    bibliographies and numerous links to related sites. A useful site for
    both the scholar and those with a general interest.
