The American Association of State and Local History (AASLH) is proud to announce its first online community where our members and history lovers can meet to discuss topics and challenges we face every day in the field of state and local history.
History News Online is just the beginning of AASLH’s commitment to creating an engaging and dynamic home for history on the Web,” states Bob Beatty, Vice President for Programs. “We plan on launching new online initiatives in the upcoming years that will connect our members to each other, address our affinity groups and their needs, and provide leadership to the field as a whole.”
Our first online community focuses on our magazine History News. The hub offers a place for readers to discuss in detail the themes our authors touch on every issue. The first thread is on Tim Grove’s latest History Bytes column and the concept of radical trust. Tim asks:
   
 “Does user-generated content fit into your mission? Should it? Is it important?”  
We’ve already gotten some great comments and audio from the field.
For upcoming issues of History News, a select article or column will be open for discussion in the online community. We hope to offer the field a place to continue the conversation on the issues that matter most to us!
