We interpret this statement of shared interest broadly, meaning to include all historical periods and diverse methodologies. We aim to promote historical work in a variety of ways, including the sponsorship of meetings and conference sessions, the publication of special issues of journals, the dissemination of information about libraries, archives and collections, and, as more ambitious projects become feasible, the preparation of bibliographies and finding guides."

H-HISTMAJOR: H-Net Discussion Forum for Undergraduate History Majors

Purpose/Audience: "H-HISTMAJOR is a moderated internet discussion forum of, by, and for undergraduate history majors. It is a place where undergraduate interests and concerns can be addressed as the primary topics rather than subtopics of professorial interests, such as curriculum or academic legitimacy. These interests can include information about graduate programs, conferences for undergrads, jobs for BAs in history, research topics, international networking, relations with faculty advisors and mentors, and whatever else concerns undergrads. In other words, a list where undergrads determine the agenda. Subscriptions will only be confirmed with a completed subscriber's survey. As with any edited list, all postings will be made at the discretion of the on-duty editor. The H-HISTMAJOR list is co-edited by rotating teams of undergraduates with faculty sponsors. Five to six history professors at different institutions will each mentor a student at their institutions, and the! faculty sponsors will also be subscribers to the list. Faculty sponsors give advice, counsel, training, support, ideas, and situational backup editing, but they will *not* try to control the list. Undergraduate editors will seek out accurate information, exclude urban legends and other Internet garbage, check out rumors before posting them, and contact faculty for help as needed."

H-ORALHIST: H-Net Discussion List on Oral History

Purpose/Audience: "H-ORALHIST is the successor to OHA-L, which began in 1993. H-ORALHIST is a network of people interested in oral history. Oral history is commonly defined as a method of collecting and preserving tape-recorded remembrances of past experiences. Although historians have been interviewing people since the ancient Chinese dynasties, the modern oral history movement is considered to have begun in 1948 when Allan Nevins established the Columbia University Oral History Research Office. The Oral History Association, with 1,200 members, promotes oral history internationally. H-ORALHIST invites subscriptions from people with a broad range of backgrounds, including public historians, students, local historians, and university faculty members. Active editing will stimulate discussions which reflect the theory as well as the practice of oral history interviewing. The list also seeks to provide an interactive forum for individuals interested in using oral history as defined above or for those who wish to contest the above definition."

H-SCI-MED-TECH: H-NET List on the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology

Purpose/Audience: "This list is intended for the growing number of scholars who study science, medicine and technology across a wide variety of periods and regions of the world. Our aim is to foster communication within and across the disciplines of history, the history of science, the history of medicine and the history of technology, which have become distinct professional fields despite their obvious (and not so obvious) interconnections. We are especially interested in reaching college faculty who teach or plan to teach about these subjects.* Subscribers will be able to share information about teaching and research, to get news of professional activities (e.g., jobs, conferences, fellowships and grants) and, most importantly, to participate in conversations about matters of common interest: new methods, new questions and new scholarship. H-SCI-MED-TECH is one of many networks in history and the humanities sponsored by H-N! ET."

rete: The history of scientific instruments

Purpose/Audience: "rete is a mailing list devoted to the history of scientific instruments. It is open to all interested parties - curators, historians, students, collectors, and dealers alike. Subscribers can use it to ask questions about particular instruments or types of instrument, to announce exhibitions, meetings and conferences, to draw attention to printed or electronic publications, and so on. The list is intended for the exchange of information rather than the sale or exchange of instruments, and should not be used for commercial purposes. (We recommend using The Gemmary's web-based bulletin board ... to announce instruments for sale.) Subscribers may, however, wish to introduce themselves to the list and to indicate their areas of interest. Further correspondence about acquiring, selling or swapping instruments should then be conducted privately off-list."
