Categories & Tags on H-Net Commons

One of the most important features on H-Net Commons is the  chance to find related content via categories and tags:

 Imagine a filing cabinet: the labels on the drawers could be considered Categories, with each folder in that drawer being a Tag.  However, unlike a filing cabinet, an individual file or posting at the Commons can have more than one Category and/or Tag. (Source: Helpdesk > Categories and tags).

Introduction

Surprised to see H-ASIA messages in your inbox?

H-ASIA has migrated from its old listserv system to a new, web-based platform, called the H-Net Commons.

At the time of migration on April 10, 2014, H-ASIA had 7,710 subscriptions, of which about 1,884 were set to NOMAIL.  During the migration, ALL NOMAIL ACCOUNTS WERE SWITCHED TO DIGEST. If you are seeing H-ASIA messages in your inbox for the first time in years, that is why.

Welcome to H-ASIA on the Commons!

Welcome to H-ASIA on the Commons!

Like the H-ASIA subscribers, the H-ASIA editors are in the process of figuring out what the H-Net Commons has to offer for Asian Studies. We invite you to explore this new realm with us, and we also ask for your patience.

Visit the H-Net Help Desk for 'how to' guides and information.

If you missed the announcements regarding this change and what you as a subscriber should do about it, please look back at these posts in the H-ASIA logs:
