A Message from H-Net's Officers and Executive Council

Jesse Draper - Executive Director (he/him) Discussion

Dear H-Net Community,

Like you, we come to H-Net to collaborate with colleagues and stay up on academic trends by tapping into rich veins of material through H-Net's free, open-access content. H-Net hosts scores of online Networks where tens of thousands of scholars find discussions on topics of interest, learn about publication and conference opportunities, read book reviews, peruse new book announcements, and search job postings. Within individual Networks, scholars seek help on projects and debate issues, publish blog posts, podcasts, book reviews, and more recently journal articles. H-Net’s digital commons continues to thrive, grow, and offer all of its content for free thanks to the revenue generated from the H-Net Job Guide. But the recent pandemic and economic recession, which have seen a rapid decrease in academic hiring, pose a threat to our budget. Our elected officers and small crew of devoted paid staff are working diligently to create new income streams until academic hiring rebounds, but we need your help.

If we all pitch in and donate, how many job ads can we replace?

Each job ad on the H-Net Job Guide brings in three hundred dollars, so even small contributions can add up fast to replace one. Our collective pooling of support will help keep H-Net thriving.
