What We’re Reading: August 26, 2010 Edition

The new school year draws nearer, and graduate students are gearing up. Read about what to expect as a grad student, what to consider when listening to advice, and learn about public history programs and the jobs they may lead to. For those already in the history profession, check out the Oral History Association's best practices page, the problems of preserving digital materials, how to respond to negative blog posts, and a brief history of intellectual property. We also link to the National Archive's YouTube channel, the Papers of the War Department project blog, the Digital Military Newspaper Library, the Library of Congress's technology holdings, and color photographs of Russia in the early 1900s. Finally, read about an upcoming symposium on the Civil War, the history of D.C. monuments, obscure presidents, the fight for women's suffrage, and preserving Scarlet O'Hara's dresses.
