The scope of the list for the past couple of days is broad. There are some incredible options for our cohorts on H-Pennsylvania.
The majority of posts are CFPs for conferences and journals. Please visit the sites as some are within Pennsylvania borders and easy to travel to. At least one international conference is offering presentations via Skype!
We wish you the best in this new Academic year. Be sure to forward the lists to students that may benefit from some of these conferences.

Greetings from Princeton University Library. We are both new in our positions at Princeton, and have been looking for a professional group to discuss issues common to librarians in academic or research libraries who are working with collections and researchers in the discipline of history.
To get such a group started, we have a filed a petition with the Association of College and Research Libraries to form a History Librarians Interest Group (HLIG).

I am a librarian at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada, and new to this list. For the past year, I have been the PI for an oral history project (“The Tech BC Memory Project”) that involves collecting stories pertaining to my own institution’s satellite campus pre-history. I’ve conducted about 30 interviews so far, which I have uploaded to SFU’s Institutional Repository.
