H-Info Decommissioned

H-Net Vice President of Networks's picture


On July 1, 2015 H-Net Executive Council voted to decommission H-Info, effectively removing it from H-Net. H-Info served a valuable function for many when founded in 2006 but has been almost completely inactive since 2008. Rather than attempting to revive a network so long dormant, H-Net Council has decided to re-directed H-Info’s 665 subscribers to other more active H-Net Networks. These include H-HistBibl, our network for the practice and study of bibliographic and library services, H-DigiRhet with its focus on computer-mediated communication, information, communication technologies, and rhetoric, and H-Digital-History working at the intersection of digital information and history. I encourage you to subscribe to these networks.

H-Info’s resource page is being handed over to the editors of H-HistBibl who have enthusiastically accepted it, along with the task of weeding out “dead” links and integrating it into their own collection of resources.

Thanks to all who have contributed to H-Info over the years. I look forward to seeing you in other venues on H-Net.

All the best,

Patrick Cox

H-Net Vice-President for Networks
