This month’s issue of Perspectives is centered on a theme: “History and the Changing Landscape of Information.” The collection of articles examines “both new ways of dealing with emergent technologies (wikis, digital publication, bibliographic techniques) and innovative methods of using old modes and models of scholarly processing of information (traditional publishing, using libraries, training to be archivists),” as Pillarisetti Sudhir explains in his Editor’s note. Some articles to note include:
- Doing History in the Digital Age
by Barbara Weinstein
- Talking Shop with the "Gutenberg-es"
by Elizabeth Fairhead
- Blogging for Your Students
by David Voelker
- Strange Facts in the History Classroom: Or How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Wiki(pedia)
by Christopher Miller
- The Historical Profession and Archival Education
by Joseph Turrini
- Welcome to the World of Trade Publishing
