H-ASIA August 22, 1995 H-NET Announcement for the "start of semester" (in U.S. academic calendar) ***************************************************************************** From: H-Net Central <CAMPBELLD@LYNX.APSU.EDU> ====================================================== H-NET: HUMANITIES ON-LINE ======================================================= H-Net Announces 70 Scholarly Lists for Humanists & Social Scientists August 19, 1995 please circulate The Information Revolution is bringing dramatic changes in the 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 scholars to go on-line, using their personal computers. We operate daily newsletters edited by some 140 scholars in North America, Europe, Africa, and the Pacific. H-Net sponsors 70 electronic discussion groups or "lists" by and for professional scholars in the humanities and social sciences. Subscribers automatically receive messages in their computer mailboxes. These messages can be saved, discarded, downloaded to a PC, copied, printed out, or relayed to someone else. Best of all, the reader can immediately REPLY. The lists are email newsletters that are published daily. There is currently no subscription charge or fee of any kind. H-Net lists reach over 30,000 subscribers in 61 countries. Each lists publishes 15-60 messages a week. Subscription applications are solicited from scholars, college professors, researchers, graduate students, librarians and archivists. Each list is edited by a team of scholars and has a board of editors; most of the lists are cosponsored by a professional society. The editors control the flow of messages, commission reviews, and reject flames and items unsuitable for a scholarly discussion group. They also control H-Net, which has financial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is hosted by Michigan State University, the University of Illinois-Chicago, and several other schools. 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. H-Net was created to provide a positive, supportive, equalitarian environment for the friendly exchange of ideas and scholarly resources. The lists feature dialogues in the discipline. They commission original book and museum reviews, and post job announcements, syllabi, course outlines, class handouts, bibliographies, listings of new sources, guides to online library catalogs and Internet resources, and reports on new software, datasets, cd-roms and World Wide Web sites. Regular reports from Washington cover developments that affect the humanities. Subscribers write in with questions, comments, and reports, and sometimes with mini-essays of a page or two. The logs of all messages are permanently saved and can easily be searched. Important items are permanently stored for easy access via gopher and [soon] WWW. ============================================================ H-Net Lists For these lists, send subscribe message to LISTSERV@uicvm.uic.edu 1.
