We will also include work on oral tradition. We are eager to include articles from a wide variety of research fields, including academic use of oral history in social, women’s, labour, Aboriginal, military, everyday life history as well as folklore and vernacular culture; the use of oral history in public history (museums, art exhibitions, broadcast media, movies, etc.); and the use of oral history in classrooms (K-12, higher education, distance education, adult education). After a thorough review of published articles, we now seek your input in making sure we have not overlooked any important publications. Please send us your suggestions for the most relevant and illuminating pieces in Canadian oral history (very broadly defined). At the end of our search, we will make the complete bibliography available online at http://www.canoha.ca. The Reader will serve as an introductory text for undergraduate and graduate students, a reference for Canadian Studies, and a gateway to Canadian oral history theory and practice for a global audience. Please send your suggestions as well as inquiries to Kristina Llewellyn email@example.com and Alexander Freund firstname.lastname@example.org ---------- 4) IMLS Seeks Grant Review Panelists It is almost springtime when IMLS program staff’s thoughts turn to…grant panel reviews! IMLS is actively seeking museum and library professionals to review grants as part of IMLS’s peer review process. If you have ever thought about becoming a grant reviewer, now is the time to get in touch with us. We depend on our library and museum community to serve on peer review panels in our Washington D.C. office and to participate as field reviewers from your home institutions. While you are performing this important service, you will learn about IMLS’s grant making process. You will also forge connections with other experts from across the country and with our exceptional and dedicated program staff. The participation of our peer reviewers is the engine that drives the competitive grant process. For more information on becoming a reviewer, please click here: http://www.imls.gov/reviewers/become.shtm. ---------- 5) Article: “Comprehensive Interpretive Plans: A Framework of Questions” If your institution is considering embarking on creating an interpretive plan, the series of questions that Marianna Adams and Judy Koke provide in this article, in the current issue of the Journal of Museum Education, is invaluable for getting you started. Practical questions you may not have considered specifically, like “Why should the public support us?” and “Is it realistic to expect that the community see us as we see ourselves?” are among the many posed here to serve as a basis for a reflective and productive institutional (or institutional/community) discussion.
