Are you interested inÂ joining one of ALA’s electronicÂ mailing (or discussion)Â lists (more popularly referred to by the brand name LISTSERVÂ®), but don’t know where to start?Â
There are upwards of 150 such lists, some open to any subscriber and general in scope, others limited to a small group for the purposes of accomplishing a specific task.Â Most ALA lists are run on the ALA servers and are listed on the ALA e-lists homepage. Â Â For instructions about joining one of the lists, please visit the “lists” page of the ReadWriteConnect wiki at http://wikis.ala.org/readwriteconnect/index.php/Main_Page
The ReadWriteConnect wiki also has information on the other tools you can use for getting involved in ALA’s work electronically–blogs, RSS feeds, wikis, podcasts–and Second Life!
Note: there are a few lists that are not run from ALA servers; these will be referenced on the web pages published by the sponsoringÂ groups or noted in their publications.
