The American Association for History and Computing announces our most recent electronic publication of The Journal of the Association for History and Computing, Vol. III, Number 1, April 2000. The AAHC, as constituted, promotes the use of computers used in historical studies, in both teaching and research. Helping the AAHC reach, this goal is our E-Journal, The Journal of the Association for History and Computing, under the editorial guidance of Dr. Jeffrey G. Barlow, Professor of History, Pacific University.
Table of Contents Include:
D. Antonio Cantu. "Teaching Pre-Columbian and Colonial American History on the Web." The author provides K-12 teachers with a review of World Wide Web Resources for teaching Pre-Columbian and colonial era history.
Michael Greenhalgh. "An Image Database & VRML Model of Borobudur" examines new ways of learning Art History made possible by image-capable desktop computers, the Web, and internet networks.

Gulliaume de Syon. "Teaching the Space Program with the World Wide Web: Challenges and Rewards of Assigning Online Readings." Based on experience acquired in the teaching of a space program course at a small college, the author offers suggestions on the effective use of web resources and the need to balance it with "traditional" reading sources.

For ease of reading the JAHC now offers an easy downloadable PDF format for all articles appearing in the Journal including translations in German, French, Spanish and Russian. Coming soon article translations will be available in Chinese and Japanese.
Editorial Comments include a reflection by editor, Dr. Jeffrey G. Barlow, on the third year of publication of the JAHC including the exciting report that ABC-CLIO, one of the largest publishers of scholarly indexes and reference materials, will now be abstracting articles appearing in the JAHC for publication in both Historical Abstracts and in America: History and Life. The JAHC is only the second electronic peer reviewed journal to be granted this honor.
Award Winners for our annual article, book and multimedia categories recently announced at the conclusion of our annual conference held at Baylor University.
Concluding remarks from our Executive Director, Dr. Dennis Trinkle, reflect on "Clio’s Digital Forge" and the fabulous success of our journal now in its third year of publication.
