ABH Launches Business History Paper.li Site

"The Business Historian" is a site devoted to the aggregation of business and management history content on the web. Managed by Kevin Tennent of the University of York, who also publishes "The Business History Blog" (which he has said will probably no longer be active), the "newspaper" "aims to bring you the best daily digest of business and management history related posts on the web." It is billed as "the weekly paper of the Association of Business Historians."
   Paper.li offers news aggregation software that allows editors to collect content according to criteria and sources that they designate and then display it in a newspaper-style format. The site can search blogs, Twitter, Facebook, news media, and indeed any open website for content. Editors have some flexibility and control in accepting and ordering the data that paper.li collects.
