LIS-Announce-L

LIS-Announce–L is the Department of Information Science e-mail LISTSERV.  It is an automatic message system that allows the Department to send broadcast messages to each person who has elected to join the list. SLIS-Announce-L is similar to a newsgroup or forum, except the messages are transmitted as e-mail, and are therefore only available to individuals who subscribe to the list. 

This communication tool offers subscribers the opportunity to learn the latest news and receive important announcements.  Many available professional job vacancies are communicated promptly through SLIS-Announce.  Also, the LISTSERV provides an avenue for members to post comments, ask questions or request information.  To make a LISTSERV request, contact the List Manager.
