On July 1, 2015 H-Net Executive Council voted to decommission H-Info, effectively removing it from H-Net. H-Info seemed to serve a valuable function for many when founded in 2006 but has been almost completely inactive since 2008. Rather than attempting to revive a network so long dormant, H-Net Council has decided to direct interested parties to other more active H-Net Networks. These include H-HistBibl, our network for the practice and study of bibliographic and library services, H-DigiRhet with its focus on computer-mediated communication, information, communication technologies, and rhetoric, and H-Digital-History working at the intersection of digital information and history. I encourage you to subscribe to these networks.

H-Info’s resource page is being handed over to the editors of H-HistBibl who have enthusiastically accepted it, along with the task of weeding out “dead” links and integrating it into their own collection of resources.

Questions about H-Info and other H-Net networks can be directed to Patrick Cox, H-Net Vice-President for Networks, at Vp-net@mail.h-net.msu.edu.

Thank you, From H-Net

Dear H-Net Readers:

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.”
