For those who don’t already know, in addition to this blog for library news and information, we maintain a second blog at vhlresources.blogspot.com which focuses on sources available both here in Oxford and elsewhere for those studying the United States. If you haven’t been following already, here’s a round-up of posts over there this year:
- Finding primary sources on the web for US history: some tips
- “Access to presidential paper and records in the presidential libraries”: guest post by DPhil candidate Patrick Sandman, reporting on a talk given at the RAI by Nancy Smith, Director of the Presidential Materials Division at the National Archives of the United States.
- The Philip & Rosamund Davies US Elections Campaigns Archive, including a video of a talk by Professor Philip Davies, Director of the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library and donor of the archive held at the VHL.
- Elections resources on the web
- New sites saved on our delicious page
More to come in 2013, including posts on the new electronic resources we acquired in the summer.
