             Subject: My Humbul - embed our records in your web pages (fwd)

    The Humbul Humanities Hub (http://www.humbul.ac.uk/) is pleased to announce
    the launch of My Humbul Include.

    My Humbul Include allows you to select records from within Humbul's growing
    catalogue of evaluated online resources, and dynamically include sets of
    those records within your own web pages. You can even add your own custom
    descriptions. Including Humbul's records within your Web page is simply a
    matter of copying and pasting 3 lines of HTML into your webpage. From then
    on, whenever users visit your webpage it will dynamically retrieve the
    records you have chosen to export from Humbul.

    If you need to add more records, delete records or change your custom
    descriptions, you can do all of that from within My Humbul. This should be
    especially useful for course web pages and other academic-support pages.

    My Humbul Include is part of the My Humbul set of services which includes an
    alerting service. Registered users of My Humbul will notice the change to
    their user interface immediately. New My Humbul users will be asked to
    register their name, email address and select a username and password.

    It is also strongly recommended that users read through the help pages for
    My Humbul Include before employing this new functionality. Help for My
    Humbul can be found at http://www.humbul.ac.uk/help/myhumbul.html and help
    for My Humbul Include can be found at

    The Humbul Humanities Hub is a service of the Resource Discovery Network
    funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee and the Arts and
    Humanities Research Board and is hosted by Oxford University.
