AASLH provides many different publications for the field. Through our quarterly magazine History News, Technical Leaflets, books, and our blog, we publish on a wide range of topics and issues to serve history practitioners. From investigations of critical issues to how-to guides and everything in between, AASLH uses our different publication outlets to advance historical practice and the field.
The Inclusive Historian’s Handbook is co-sponsored by AASLH and the National Council on Public History (NCPH). It aligns with AASLH’s and NCPH’s goals of building diversity and inclusion across the historical community. The Handbook provides easily accessible information for historians working in multiple contexts. Authored by field experts, the entries combine practical advice with critical reflections and telling examples. Because it is a multi-authored project, it does not speak with a single, authoritative voice. Rather, authors offer their perspectives and share ideas and recommendations drawn from experiences in the field. This dynamic reference source supports inclusive and equity-focused historical work in public settings by sharing a knowledge base that invites more people to engage in history projects. This handbook provides concrete examples of how to make history work more relevant. It centers on equity, inclusivity, diversity, and public service while offering accessible windows into the many ways public historians work.
In partnership with the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN), AASLH has launched an online, illustrated bilingual version of Nomenclature 4.0, integrating and reconciling the latest edition of Robert Chenhall’s cataloging standard with data from the Parks Canada Visual and Descriptive Dictionary. Released under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY 4.0) license, Nomenclature is available as linked open data (LOD). Users will no longer need to purchase a book or electronic file to stay current with this cataloging standard, and software vendors will no longer have to pay a licensing fee for its use. The Nomenclature website (www.nomenclature.info) offers the most up-to-date version of the Nomenclature standard, as well as a user guide, terminology submission forms, and other helpful resources. Terminology is available in both English and French. The Nomenclature Committee serves to promote Nomenclature, to assist with its adoption, and to maintain and develop Nomenclature to ensure that it remains responsive to the needs of the profession.
