What We’re Reading: May 29, 2008 Edition

This week’s “What We’re Reading” starts off with the news that Microsoft is shutting down its Live Search Books and Live Search Academic projects, after digitizing over 750,000 books. And speaking of the digital age, David Pogue writes about copyright issues and e-Publishing in an article for the New York Times. On the online resources front we link to EDSITEment’s new feature on “The Presidents,” where they pair up with PBS to examine recent presidencies. Then, read about the new DiRT wiki, get advice for your job interview at the AHA annual meeting, learn about the “crowdsourcing” of history, and read a summary of the recent Jefferson Lecture featuring John Updike.
