What We’re Reading: August 14, 2008 Edition
This week’s What We’re Reading includes links from one end of the graduate school spectrum to the other. Read the latest installment in Claire Potter’s series on the hiring process, or start from the beginning with Student Hacks’ timetable for entering graduate school. Then, the ACRLog asks, “Where do you draw the line on plagiarism?” And we round this post off with a report from the Library of Congress on recently discovered treasures, and a number of Hillary Clinton’s campaign memos from The Atlantic.
- Dream A Little Dream Of Me: Six Easy Steps to Writing a Great Job Letter
Continuing her terrific series on the hiring process, Tenured Radical offers great advice for writing the cover letter in "Dream A Little Dream Of Me: Six Easy Steps to Writing a Great Job Letter."
- Application Timetable for Graduate School
The blog studenthacks.org, which posts “productivity tips to help students study smarter,” offers a 15-month timetable for students interested in entering graduate school.
- Reuse, Remix, Regret
This item at ACRLog ponders: “Where do you draw the line on plagiarism?” It seems as if they’re suggesting that plagiarism is so 20th century. Does that mean we just need to get over it?
- Library of Congress Junior Fellows Unearth Treasures
The Library of Congress blog has a nifty report on the historical treasures unearthed by the interns in their junior fellows program.
- The Hillary Clinton Memos
The Atlantic has posted a number of memos from Hillary Clinton’s recent campaign. Hat tip.
