> Dear MAA Liaison,
>
> We want to share some of our recent and planned enhancements to
> Convergence, the MAA's online history of mathematics magazine
> (convergence.mathdl.org), and ask for your assistance.
>
> First, in the "On This Day" section of Convergence, the events now  
> have
> links to additional information. Next, the answers to the "problems  
> from
> another time" are now available. In addition, a collection of over 200
> portraits of mathematicians has been added to the site.
>
> Plans for new additions to Convergence are underway. We are working  
> with
> Columbia University to digitize part of the David Eugene Smith
> collection. We also hope to make available additional history of
> mathematics sites that you will find useful.
>
> As always, Convergence is looking for good articles in the history of
> mathematics. Be sure to take advantage of the online nature of the
> magazine, and send your articles to Victor Katz at vkatz at udc.edu.
>
> To help us promote Convergence, please share this note with your
> colleagues, mention the site to your students, and include it as a  
> link
> on your home page.  Naturally, Convergence should also be on the web
> page for any history of mathematics course offered in your department.
>
>
> If you have questions or want to give us advice, we would love to hear
> from you.
