H-Net email headers (administration)


H-Net has been having some difficulties with the e-mail transmission of its announcements.  The system seems to be operating fairly smoothly now, but you may notice a chance in the e-mail headers.

The "from" line of the header used to read:

H-Net Notifications <drupaladmin@mail.h-net.msu.edu>

The new "from" line reads


H-Net reviews posted to the web 10 Jul 2017 - 17 Jul 2017

Your network editor has reposted this from H-Announce. The byline reflects the original authorship.

Re: H-Net Management

To paraphrase Groucho Marx, I wouldn't submit an idea to any organization that would have my thoughts posted publicly. But seriously, I'm a member of H-Net, a subscriber to more than half a dozen networks, an editor on one network, and on a planning committee for another, and I joined up within the past year. I've gotten lots of great help, advice, and discussion from editors, directors, and staff, and I've found them and the information posted accessible, professional, and in good spirit.

Awash in Information, Historians Fear Loss of Rich Material

Scott Shane writes about the importance of personal biographical information and primary sources in the digital age:

"The advance of technology has created a huge volume of digital information, much of it ephemeral and easy to lose or destroy, while all but eliminating some of the richest sources for historians who have plumbed the 19th and 20th centuries."
