H-Net proudly welcomes H-Postal-History to its family of nearly 200 networks, now available on the H-Net Commons. Read on and follow the links below for more information about these exciting new networks!
Quo Vadis, H-Net? It’s our 25th anniversary, so naturally we wonder where the next 25 years will take us. Our transition to the H-Net Commons five years ago opened a new world of possibilities for content sharing, networking, publishing, and communications services for scholars in the social sciences and humanities. Will you help us get there?
Our talented professional staff and a legion of wonderful volunteer editors are already marking out an exciting future for our organization. A few glimpses beyond the horizon:
Did you know that from its beginnings 25 years ago, H-Net has supported the work of dozens of professional scholarly organizations, big and small? Long before the advent of the web, H-Net’s listservs provided a vital channel for scholarly societies to attract new members, spread news of their work, and announce new projects and publications. Many of these societies have sponsored or endorsed networks and enlivened discussions with contributions from members, leaders, and officers.
Dear H-Net Subscribers,
We are happy to report that the Commons is back online! Most of the work done was under the hood, so you won't notice any drastic changes in the look of things unless you're an editor moderating posts. However, you should see an improvement in the way content is organized across the entire site.
Dear H-Net Subscribers,
The dates in the previous message about the Commons offline maintenance were incorrect. The Commons will be offline beginning at 5pm EST Thursday August 16th and we anticipate bringing it back online by Monday August 20th.
Here is the corrected announcement in full:
Please Note: The H-Net Commons will go offline Thursday, August 18 at 5pm EST for a major platform update. This update will improve H-Net editors’ ability to organize content on their networks and make searching for and sharing content across networks more intuitive. We hope to have the Commons up and running again by Monday, April 22, or sooner.
Has H-Net helped you find a job, hire a new colleague, join or manage a scholarly organization, develop skills with new media, find and deepen contacts with fellow professionals, or find a conference or publishing outlet for your research?
