H-Scholar is sponsored by the National Coalition of Independent Scholars. Its purposes are: assisting independent scholars to share their work and research interests with the larger community, enhancing their productivity by promoting the sharing of information and resources, facilitating communication between independent and academically affiliated scholars with shared interests and concerns, providing information about issues of general interest to all working scholars regardless of their discipline or situation and creating a forum for discussion of specific scholarly issues across disciplinary boundaries.

Re: Welcome to H-Scholar on the Commons

To Margaret DeLacy, H-Scholar's February editor and Transition Manager:

Thanks for posting the welcome to the new H-Commons platform and for subscription guidance.

The new logo is colorful and very a propos. I take 2 lessons from it.

First, even though scholarly work in the humanities can seem lonely and sequestered, it really never is: the main point is discussion, the process of developing knowledge by sharing it. This is just as true for independent scholars as for scholars in academe.

my mistake

Friends:

In the course of trying to fix some startup problems on H-Scholar I inadvertently posted the message below from H-Net , which was evidently intended for my own account and not for the list.  It contained the password that was created for me.  H-Net has cancelled the password and it no longer works.

If you need to reset your own password, below is a link to a help file on that topic

Re: Welcome to H-Scholar on the Commons

Navigating the sign-up for H-Scholar on the Commons takes a bit of patience and determination, but I hope that our list members will not be discouraged. Our new Commons presence offers many new opportunities.  At the moment, the H-Scholar editors welcome suggestions for content on our Commons page.  What resources, kinds of information, etc. might be helpful to you in your scholarly work?

H-Scholar,

Welcome to the H-Net Commons!  As we noted in a recent message, H-Scholar is no
longer operating as a listserv and is now on the H-Net Commons.  (Note that as this
message is sent during the migration process, it may be a couple of hours before
everything is completely visible.)
