History of Ideas Bibliography

I am interested in developing a bibliograpy for H-Ideas and would like to hear from those who can contribute in doing this.  The bibliography can be a resource that provides readings in both the history of ideas in general and in sub-fields.  We can also use those sub-fields as tags on H-Ideas so that people can easily find postings in their areas of research.  Please email me if you would like to help with this: Oanderson@asu.edu
