Shavua Tov Safranim! Here is this week's list of Bookmarkable links. Remember that all of the links from recent posts on the Weekly Link Roundup can also now be searched at by searching for "ajl_links". 

The Flickr Commons: Get photos through participating organizations at the Flickr Commons; most of them have no known copyright restrictions. The Center for Jewish History has contributions  as well as the Jewish Society of the Upper Midwest. (Anyone else I missed?)

-Folks who might be looking forJudaica library  jobs, here's a great exhaustive list of Jewish studies programs  available globally.

-Bodleian Library holds a copy of Rambam's Mishneh Torah, signed by Maimonides himself. They have digitized it here and made it available for all to see (by way of the YU blog)

-In my Internet travels, I came across this great pathfinder with links for the study of American Jewish History from the Myer And Rosaline Feinstein Center For American Jewish History, Temple University.

-Historical Jewish Press: "This site contains a collection of Jewish newspapers published in various countries, languages, and time periods. We display digital versions of each newspaper, making it possible to view the papers in their original layout. Full-text search is also available for all content published over the course of each newspaper’s publication." (By way of Michelle Chesner's recent talk at AJL-NYC).

-Computers in Libraries conference will be in Washington D.C. from March 21-23 For those who might be in D.C. free exhibit passes are available for even if you don't necessarily want to pay for the entire conference. The Twitter hashtag will be #cil11 and hashtags for Flickr will also most likely be under tags cil2011 or cil11.
