Weekend Round-up

  • Over at The Historical Society, Randall Stephens poses the question, "What can we learn about the craft of history by reading the autobiographies of historians?" "A great deal," he answers . . .
  • The Law Librarians of Congress want you to know about their Jewish Law Collection. Most interesting for historians may be the "surprising number of early translations of rabbinic works and commentaries on Jewish law written by non-Jewish and non-rabbinic authors."
  • Et seq., the Harvard Law School Library Blog, is in the process of digitizing and mounting the School's printed exams from the dawn of the Langdellian era. CCL's contracts exam from June 1871 is here.
  • UPDATE: The finding aid for all the available HLS exams (through 1995) is available here. (hat tip: Kyle Graham)
The Weekend Round-up is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
