New e-mail announcement, events lists started
Two email lists for sharing information about University announcements and events were launched last week.
ANNOUNCE-L and EVENTS-L, both moderated lists, are voluntary e-mail lists to which anyone within the uconn.edu domain can subscribe. The postings are also accessible beyond the UConn network via the World Wide Web.
In an inaugural message about ANNOUNCE-L, Mark Emmert, chancellor, noted that as UConn continues through a time of transition and progress "we need to communicate more effectively - as a community and with one another. As we deal with change and uncertainty it is essential that we initiate more and better means of communicating.
"It is in this context, and consistent with recent discussions, that I am glad to say that ANNOUNCE-L is joining the array of mechanisms of communication which we all currently employ , both on the web and off," Emmert said.
The two new lists have similar but separate functions:
The way to post items is different for each list:
The owners of the ANNOUNCE-L list are Mark J. Roy of University Communications; Arthur Brodeur, special assistant to the Chancellor; and Murphy Sewall, professor of marketing in the School of Business Administration. Rick Ellis of the Computer Center is the temporary owner of the EVENTS-L list.
Users must subscribe to the lists separately.
For both, there are two ways to subscribe. You can use a form on the web, or send e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leave the subject field blank. In the body of the message, fill in the following information: subscribe listname your_name, entering either ANNOUNCE-L or EVENTS-L for "listname" and your own first and last name for "your_name". (Note: the underline denotes a blank space.)
