What We’re Reading: June 26, 2008 Edition

AHA Staff | Jun 26, 2008

Perhaps June should be “Digital History Awareness Month.” Last week’s “What We’re Reading” was heavy on digital history articles, and this week is no different. We start off with Cathy Davidson responding to Mills Kelly’s discussion of digital scholarship and tenure, followed by Jeremy Young’s troubling question about Web 2.0, and end up with a look at digitization efforts at the Boston Public Library. This post also includes news of new special collections acquisitions, a survey of women’s history, struggles with the Freedom of Information Act, treasures in the attic, a new Gutenberg-e title, and this year’s winner of the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award.
