On July 1, 2015, H-Net Council voted to decommission H-Illinois and several other networks dedicated to the study of the history and culture of Midwestern US states. Council also approved a plan to create a new network, H-Midwest, dedicated to Midwestern Studies. Folks interested in Illinois Studies are encouraged to look for H-Midwest on H-Net in Fall, 2015.

Questions can be sent to Patrick Cox, H-Net Vice-President for Networks, at vp-net@mail.h-net.msu.edu.

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.
