On July 1, 2015 H-Net Executive Council voted to decommission H-Mac, effectively removing it from H-Net. In earlier correspondence with H-Net’s Vice-President for Networks, one of H-Mac’s founding editors, Kittrell Rushing, stated, “H-Mac adequately served its purpose. It can be retired with honor and fond memories.” H-Net Council has agreed. While recognizing H-Mac’s long service as one of H-Net’s oldest networks, Council also recognized the digital working environment for historians and other scholars has changed dramatically since the network’s founding in 1994. Those interested in ongoing discussions and topics on computers in the humanities and social sciences will likely find comfort in H-Digital-History and EDTECH, H-Net’s network on educational technology. I encourage you to subscribe to these networks.

Questions about this decommissioned network can be sent to Patrick Cox, H-Net Vice-President for Networks (and Mac user) at vp-net@h-net.mail.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.”
