"H-Net creates and coordinates Internet networks with the common
objective of advancing teaching and research in the arts, humanities,
and social sciences. H-Net is committed to pioneering the use of new
communication technology to facilitate the free exchange of academic
ideas and scholarly resources.
"Among H-Net's most important activities is its sponsorship of over 100 free electronic, interactive newsletters ("lists") edited by scholars in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and the Pacific.
"H-Net lists 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 the literature in their fields."
