What We’re Reading: August 20, 2009 Edition

We start off this week with the news that the National History Center is now accepting applications for the 2010 Decolonization seminar. Then, check out an article on Paul Jennings, a slave in James Madison’s White House who wrote a memoir on his experiences there. From the blogs, NARA has joined the blogosphere and is already generating discussions, while the Library of Congress recently used its blog to report on new discoveries in its archives.  Finally, speaking of archives, check out Google’s newspaper archives, which recently quadrupled in size.  And take a look at Kate T.’s Archives 2.0 wiki, a new source for lists of online archives and more.
