Lately I have made some minor changes to the sidebar. The clock, a service provided by ClockLink, was turned to winter time, which started last night. In addition to a number of what I call Israel-related weblogs, several online news providers in Dutch, English, French, German and Hebrew were added.
One research-related website was brought to my attention by a friend of mine: Archives Made Easy, an on-line guide to archives around the globe. Hosted by the International History department at the London School of Economics and Political Science, this website gives researchers and others practical information about a growing number of archives all over the world. The information is provided by fellow-researchers who - so it seems at least - visited the archives themselves for their own research. Benn Williams, the American historian who provided information about the archives of the Institut d'Histoire du Temps Present, happens to be one of the doctorants with whom I shared a room at that institute, when I spent almost half a year with my family in Paris in the winter of 2003-4. Another useful website contains links to many libraries and archives that are relevant for everyone who is interested in or works on subjects related to Judaism, Jewish history etc. This website is created and updated by Ethan Starr.
