College Listservs

There are two electronic lists that students must access on a daily basis, ischooldiscussion@listserv.umd.edu and ischoolannouncements@listserv.umd.edu.

ISCHOOLDISCUSSION is the venue for current dialogue within the College, the micro community, and the macro community of library and information professionals. The electronic discussion group is open to anyone; however, College alumni, students, faculty, and staff are the most frequent contributors. Topics of discussion might include journal articles from the field, questions and requests for information, notes about special events and searches for housing information.

ISCHOOLANNOUNCEMENTS is the official listserv for distribution of information pertinent to current students (e.g. registration, graduation, open forums). The Student Services Office automatically subscribes current students to this listserv once they have submitted their UMD email addresses to the Office. To ignore emails sent via the listserv is to risk not participating in academic activities in a timely manner. For example, instructions regarding registration procedures and deadlines are posted on the listserv rather than in hard copy.

To subscribe to ISCHOOLDISCUSSION:

  • Send an electronic mail message to listserv@listserv.umd.edu
  • Leave the subject line blank
  • Include in the body of the email “SUBSCRIBE ISCHOOLDISCUSSION”

To unsubscribe from ISCHOOLDISCUSSION:

  • Send an e-mail to listserv@listserv.umd.edu
  • Leave the subject line blank, but use the message:
  • Include in the body of the email “UNSUBSCRIBE ISCHOOLDISCUSSION”

Students may contribute to the listserv by sending text in the form of an electronic mail message to the following address: ischooldiscussion@listserv.umd.edu.
