H-Net Announces 43 Scholarly Lists for Humanists
September 13, 1994 please circulate
I. The Information Revolution is happening now. Dramatic changes are underway in the electronic communications infrastructure worldwide, especially the Internet system that links academics together in a fast, free and friendly environment. H-Net is an international initiative to assist humanists to go on-line, using their personal computers. It operates daily newsletters for humanists, moderated by some 80 scholars in the US, Australia, Canada, Italy and Japan. H-Net has financial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is hosted by the University of Illinois-Chicago and Michigan State University.
II. H-Net sponsors 43 electronic discussion groups or "lists" by and for professional scholars in the humanities. Subscribers automatically receive messages in their computer mailboxes. These messages can be saved, discarded, downloaded to a PC, copied, printed out, posted to local bulletin boards, or relayed to someone else. Best of all, the reader can immediately REPLY. The lists are email newsletters that are published daily. Currently our lists have 15,000 subscribers in 51 countries. They receive an average of 15-40 messages a week. Subscription applications are solicited from scholars, college professors and graduate students. We especially welcome librarians and archivists. Each list is moderated by one or more scholars and has a board of editors. The moderators control the flow of messages and reject those unsuitable for a scholarly discussion group.
The goals of H-NET lists are to enable scholars to easily communicate current research and teaching interests; to discuss new approaches, methods and tools of analysis; to share information on electronic databases; and to test new ideas and share comments on current historiography. Each list is especially interested in methods of teaching in diverse settings. The lists feature dialogues in the discipline. They publish book reviews, job announcements, syllabi, course outlines, class handouts, bibliographies, listings of new sources, guides to online library catalogs and archives, and reports on new software, datasets and cd-roms. Subscribers write in with questions, comments, and reports, and sometimes with mini-essays of a page or two.
