Nursing Listservs

  1. 1. Nursing Listservs & USENET Newsgroups E-mail lists — sometimes called "ListServs," after the name of a kind of e-mail list software — are very useful tools for gathering and disseminating information. They are like telephone "party lines," but using e-mail. Users subscribe to an e- mail list, or group of e-mail lists, according to the topic areas that interest them (There are thousands of e-mail lists world-wide on various topics). When they are added to the list, they will begin to receive messages posted to the e-mail list server. Anyone who subscribes to an e-mail list receives any and all information posted to that service. Each list has its own rules of etiquette, usually distributed once you are accepted to the e-mail list. Some do not allow commercial postings. Some services are moderated — meaning they have someone who determines if each posting is appropriate for their service. Most e-mail lists are not moderated. Also, from time to time you may encounter closed e-mail lists — services open only to members or a particular group or organization. Words of advice: since most listserv subscriptions are handled automatically by computer, use of special “stationary” and signature lines can really confuse the computer and generate serious error messages. When attempting to join a listserv, be sure to turn off the signature and avoid using email stationary formats. Most automatic listserv management software cannot understand commands in the subject line. Unless otherwise specified, please leave this blank and compose your subscription message in the body of the email. Follow the subscription information that accompanies each listing: Addiction Nursing Discussion ADDCTNSG listproc@list.ab.umd.edu
