URGENT! CALL FOR MODERATORS for H-Scholar and H-Net

URGENT CALL FOR MODERATORS - H-Scholar and H-Net
Margaret DeLacy has put out an urgent call for list-serv moderators for the Humanities Networks H-Scholar and H-Net. When these lists were established 25 years ago, NCIS was the source of list moderators, and the success of the networks is such that there are now 150 special interest networks. Every post must pass under the eyes of a Moderator. There are now only two Moderators left on the team, and Margaret says that they will need to shut the lists down unless they can recruit additional volunteers to spend a few hours a month moderating posts.
PLEASE CONSIDER OFFERING A FEW HOURS OF YOUR TIME TO MODERATE A LISTSERV IN YOUR DISCIPLINE.

Margaret DeLacey tells us that "When I was starting out in scholarship I dreamed of a service like this--a list of every conference, book, announcement etc. in one central place so I didn't have to juggle a truckload of association newsletters. H-Scholar is sponsored by the National Coalition of Independent Scholars. Its purposes are: assisting independent scholars to share their work and research interests with the larger community, enhancing their productivity by promoting the sharing of information and resources, facilitating communication between independent and academically affiliated scholars with shared interests and concerns, providing information about issues of general interest to all working scholars regardless of their discipline or situation and creating a forum for discussion of specific scholarly issues across disciplinary boundaries. H-Scholar now has just under 2,000 subscribers, but we need your help! ...."Best of all, it is all completely free!"
H-Net projects of special interest to independent scholars including H-HistBibl, the book reviews, H-podcast, the Book Channel, the "Digital Humanities Hub," and the announcements, which you can filter by type, date or location (for example, grants, conferences, calls for proposals).And the newest H-Net project is a remote conference repository for papers

You can read a list without subscribing but you must complete a profile to post.
