H-Scholar format changes

Colleagues--
     Today H-Net had a makeover that you'll see reflected on H-Scholar when you next come to visit. The look has changed, but I think you'll find that the basic way in which you manage your profile, post messages to H-Scholar, and navigate to other networks remain the same. If you have a few extra moments, you might want to log on to H-Scholar, familiarize yourself with the new look, and write us about how you like it.
