The link does not appear to be working. I could not access the material/source. Consequently, rated "poor" even though it may, in fact, be an outstanding resource.

Hi, Seth: We finally tracked down the correct URL for this resource. The author changed schools and Harvard is transitioning to a new system, so they provided me with the new link. Thanks for being so vigilant.

Thank you for letting us know, Seth. It appear the author has left that institution, so I contacted her at the new institution. Hopefully, she will provide a better link to it. Thank you again.
