Cool academic Jewish history site

Too often, the history part of the Jewish studies section at Barnes
and Nobles seems to have nothing in it but Gilbert's atlases of the
Jewish people and 10 million popularized, generic, footnote-less books

The bibliography section is nice, for example. Stephen Corrsin's
Polish Jewish history bibliography search engine does NOT seem to

pretty useful, if the e-mail address still works.
The professors' own pages on the site might be even more useful.
See, for example:
Shaul Stampfer lists publications about many topics near and dear to
the hearts of Jewish genealogists, such as old Eastern European
censuses. Obviously a writer I'm going to be reading, if I ever
overcome my sloth.
