The NACCU Listserv
The naccu-l listserv is a wonderful resource for our institutional members. (Sorry, corporates - but look for new ways for you to engage with the community soon!).
Right now, there are some very interesting discussions taking place on the listserv:
- Door access requests
- Off-campus programs
- Is your ID considered a state-issued ID?
- Expiration dates
It's a fantastic resource for bouncing ideas off your peers, seeing how they do things, and getting feedback about what you are doing.
You have to ask to be included in it.
The listserv is hosted by our friends at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. So it is not in any way connected to our member database.
This means if you want to add new people to the listserv or change your email address, you need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us.
To add someone to the listserv:
Send an email to email@example.com with the following information:
One thing to note is that if the individual uses an alias for email, we need the real email address in order for them to be able to post on the listserv. So if their alias is firstname.lastname@example.org, but their real email address that points to that simpler one is email@example.com, we need the second one for the listserv. You can keep the alias for the member database.
Please make sure you add the individual to your organization before requesting listserv access.
To change your email address in the listserv
Send your name and your new email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bam. Done.
Remember that the listserv database is not connected to the member database, so be sure to change your email address on your profile as well.
"I love the IDEA of the listserv.
But I hate all those emails!"
You can choose to receive your listserv messages in another format.
Mail: Receive messages to your email address as they are contributed to the list. This is the default setting, and the typically the preferred member type.
Digest: Receive all of the daily messages in digest format in one e-mail.
MIME Digest: Receive all of the daily messages in one e-mail in MIME format. With MIME, each message is received as an attachment to the email.
Index: Receive a daily index of the subject lines of the messages of the day. You can then view them with the web interface.
Nomail: Don't receive list contributions to your e-mail address. You can view messages with the web interface.
To change to one of these other formats, just let us know at - you guessed it - email@example.com.
