Dear History Graduate Students,

 From its earliest days the Organization of American Historians has 
stressed the importance of student membership and I am writing today 
to forward the attached letter from OAH President, Pete Daniel to 
graduate students in American history or American studies.  It is 
important for graduate students to recognize the value of joining a 
professional organization early in their careers.

I would like to call your attention to one of the most significant 
benefits of membership, Recent Scholarship Online.  OAH members can 
sign up to receive free monthly automated email updates on all recent 
scholarship (books, articles and dissertations) produced in their 
specific areas of interest.  Members are able to search citations 
from more than 1,100 history-related publications, and create a 
"session bibliography" that combines the results of multiple searches 
into a single list.

The OAH has made a commitment to students by keeping rates low and 
providing membership benefits that will assist them today and well 
into the future.  Please allow me to thank you in advance for your 
assistance in our outreach to this group of scholars.
