Historians who use Macintoshes should take note of the History and Macintosh
Society, an Apple-registered user group. The group publishes a quarterly
newsletter and distributes shareware to its members. The purpose of the
group is to discuss Macintosh software and hardware that might be
of interest to historians and academics in related fields. As it goes
into its second year, HMS will be discussing databases as note-taking
and note-organizing devices, portable Macs and their place in libraries
and archives, and recently advances in software aimed at the academic

HMS was founded as a SIG (special interest group) becasue it was felt that
the major Mac publications were too concerned with graphics and business
applications, and that there were a lot of Mac-using historians out there
who don't have the time or the patience to wade through MacUser and Macworld.

The HMS newsletter and shareware are not available electronically.
If you are interested in joining ($10/year; $30/lifetime - and dues
will be going up next summer!), contact:
