Re: H-Net book Channel, comment

Dear Barbara (if I may),

Thank you for highlighting the Book Channel for H-Scholar's subscribers. Let me respond, since you asked some questions here. First, regarding the date range of new books. Since we launched the service this past fall, it was most manageable to index books from the current year and the years going forward. It would simply be beyond our capacity right now to go back beyond that. Over time, the lists will grow, but the idea is for the Book Channel to help readers learn about the most recent academic publications.
