Call for H-Minerva Volunteers to help Network Grow

Dear Minerva Subscribers

About 18 months ago, we put out a request for volunteers to help our network grow. There was no response, but we are still in need of volunteers to help manage H-MINERVA and bring new ideas. My hope is that we grow our network and become a better resource for our subscribers. Please consider helping out as an editor or as a volunteer with any of the projects we hope to develop on our network.  If you are interested or want to find out more details, please contact me directly. The following is a repost from September 2014.
