What We’re Reading: May 15, 2008 Edition

AHA Staff | May 15, 2008

We start off this week’s “What We’re Reading,” with three newsworthy items: NARA’s recent “Founders Online” report, the appointment of a new director at the Institute for the Study of Europe, and recent bills in Congress on “orphan works.” Next we link to two book reviews, one in which Robert McHenry examines the term “whig history,” and another where Anne Applebaum showcases how mighty (and scathing) the pen can be. Then, we turn to the digital realm, linking to a PowerPoint presentation on “Web 2.0 for Archivists,” and then to a survey on the quality of digital texts. Finally, watch an interview with the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s president Richard Moe, and check out Australian historian Ian Tyrrell’s new blog.
