Plans are under way to hold four, 60-90 minute study group sessions focused on chapters 1 and 2 of Elizabeth Shown Mills' Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, 3rd edition (1), commonly referred to as EE. This post constitutes a call for panelists to appear regularly on the hangout filmstrip panel as we discuss the fundamentals of evidence analysis and citation. Panelists may be from all walks of life with varied levels of research experience. None need be citation experts, as all will follow Mrs. Mills' guidance articulated in this book and accompanying website. The author has not been asked to participate in this study group series. Additional information about EE, QuickLessons and a prolific discussion forum are found at http://www.EvidenceExplained.com.
