The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Early English Books Online

Thanks to a post from Mercurius Politicus' Blog, I've found out about this, which might be of interest to those of a historical persuasion. You can now interact with the Early English Books Online, make comments upon the text and suchlike. It's a rather exciting idea, if I do say so myself.

Here's the Website's own blurb,

"About EEBO Interactions

Welcome to EEBO Interactions, a social networking resource for Early English Books Online (EEBO). EEBO Interactions offers its users new ways of engaging with EEBO and with the community of scholars who use EEBO in teaching and research."

Anyways, here the linky.
