Hello, it is that time of year again!

The Historical Materials Committee of the Reference and User Services Association’s History Section is soliciting nominations for the committee’s annual Best Historical Materials list.  The list consists of the best online historical bibliographies, indexes, and reference products that have been created, published, or significantly updated within the past two calendar years (the 2017 list will consider titles published in 2015 and 2017).

The subjects for the nominees may vary broadly; check the list provided for coverage. Last year’s list included print and ebook resources. If you have questions, please let me know. Feel free to share the call with relevant groups.

If you wish the committee to consider a title, please send your nomination to Sue McFadden, chair of the committee, at smcfadde[at]iue.edu.  Deadline for nominations is September 30.
