There are two electronic lists that students must access on a daily basis, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The first is a 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 job announcements, 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 subscribes current students 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.
