Thank you, From H-Net

Dear H-Net Readers:

As our fall appeal comes to a close, all of us at H-Net wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the many readers who have contributed during the past few weeks.  Your gifts go directly to our program services, helping us to staff our help desk, make improvements to our web resources, and develop new features that leverage the tremendous talent pool of our hundreds of volunteer editors.

Support Your Local Editor...

Dear H-Net subscribers and readers,

H-Net is uniquely poised in the online academic world in a way that other sites and outlets simply can't match. It isn't just H-Net's new publishing platform that makes that the case. In the past two years 280 new editors have joined H-Net. That's 280 scholars, researchers,
and teachers who have seen the potential of the H-Net Commons, gotten involved to help develop it, and are providing service to their fields by building resources and developing meaningful content with and for their peers.

Looking Toward H-Net's Future

Dear H-Net Readers and Subscribers:

Over ten years ago, the H-Net Council passed a Strategic Plan for H-Net that envisioned what became the Commons.  H-Net would “implement an enterprise-wide content management system that encourages information sharing in a protected networked environment monitored by field experts” and “Plan for migration of content delivery technologies to web-based formats for editing, publication, and service.”

H-SOLCHA decommissioned

On July 1, 2015, H-Net Council voted to de-commission H-SOLCHA.  The network has been unused. Rather than attempt to revive an unused network, H-Net Council suggests H-SOLCHA’s 330 subscribers join our much larger and far more active networks that cover the same fields. H-LatAm is an international forum for the scholarly discussion of Latin American history, including environmental history, has over 4000 subscribers, and is affiliated with the Conference on Latin American History. H-LatAm’s collection of syllabi is quire extensive.
