The Workshop on Polarized Electron Sources and Polarimeters (PESP2008) was hosted by Jefferson Lab October 1–3, 2008, in association with SPIN2008, continuing a tradition since 1983. The workshop was well attended with 84 registrants, 38 oral presentations and 17 posters. The usual topics were covered: DC and RF photoguns, high voltage issues, photocathodes, drive lasers, vacuum and polarimetry. Detailed accounts of each contribution (oral and poster) appear within these Proceedings. This submission summarizes some of the highlights of the workshop.
