Winter Break Hours at the Home Office

Happy holidays from all of us at the H-Net home office!

The H-Net home office will remain open over the winter break (December 21 - January 8), however, we will be operating with a greatly reduced office staff. We ask for your patience as we do our best to keep up with help desk requests and phone calls during this time.


Here are our revised hours of operation over break (all times listed EST):


Monday December 21 to Wednesday December 23 - 9 AM to 5 PM

December 24-25 - Closed

Help Desk Resources

The Media tab has been replaced with a new Resources tab universally across the H-Net Commons. This was done to make it easier to collect, organize and display new projects, as well as existing projects, content, and media on the Networks. These Categories are broadly conceived (see below) and were set up as default templates for all networks. It is important to underscore, however, that network editors retain editorial control over their Networks' Resources tabs. They can be revised to suit the needs of each individual Network.
