What We’re Reading: October 20, 2011 Edition

We begin this week with responses to the federal proposal on Institutional Review Boards, articles on the new free OpenClass course management system, and the news that Monmouth University is the new home of the Bruce Springsteen Archive. Then, read about Twitter in academia, a new website on Indians of the Midwest, and Smithsonian History.

Institutional Review Boards




  • Indians of the MidwestIndians of the Midwest, Past and Present
    The D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies recently launched a new website titled "Indians of the Midwest, Past and Present," which features video interviews with historians and Native Americans, essays, illustrations, bibliographies, maps, timelines, and other resources.
  • Smithsonian History
    The Smithsonian Institution Archives just launched a new website (see also the video about the launch) and it features a special section on Smithsonian History. You can even “explore what happened at the Smithsonian on any day of the year since 1846” in the This Day in SI History section.
