On July 1, 2015, H-Net Executive Council voted to de-commission H-ECAI, effectively removing it from H-Net. H-ECAI was established in 2004 but has been inactive since 2011. Rather than attempt to revive a long dormant network, H-Net Council suggests members of H-ECAI’s community of humanists, historians, cultural heritage managers, librarians, and curators, as well as information technology researchers with specialties in GIS, information retrieval, and networking will be interested in some of H-Net’s other larger and far more active networks. These include H-DigiRhet with its focus on computer-mediated communication, information and communication technologies, H-Digital-History for historians in the digital humanities, and H-HistGeog for geographers, historians, and all others interested in the intricate relationship between space and time.

Questions about this decommissioned network can be directed to Patrick Cox at VP-Net@mail.h-net.msu.edu.

Support Your Local Editor...

Dear H-Net subscribers and readers,

H-Net is uniquely poised in the online academic world in a way that other sites and outlets simply can't match. It isn't just H-Net's new publishing platform that makes that the case. In the past two years 280 new editors have joined H-Net. That's 280 scholars, researchers,
and teachers who have seen the potential of the H-Net Commons, gotten involved to help develop it, and are providing service to their fields by building resources and developing meaningful content with and for their peers.

Looking Toward H-Net's Future

Dear H-Net Readers and Subscribers:

Over ten years ago, the H-Net Council passed a Strategic Plan for H-Net that envisioned what became the Commons.  H-Net would “implement an enterprise-wide content management system that encourages information sharing in a protected networked environment monitored by field experts” and “Plan for migration of content delivery technologies to web-based formats for editing, publication, and service.”
