Welcome to the ARSCLIST Electronic Discussion List as hosted by the
Library of Congress. Please save this message for future reference. If
you do not wish to be on this list, or wish to leave the list in the
future, you will find the necessary instructions below.
ARSCLIST was established to facilitate discussion of the many issues
surrounding sound recording
collecting and archiving. A listserv is an automatic mailing list
service whereby an email
received from an individual member is automatically forwarded to
everyone on the list. Mary R. Bucknum, current ARSC secretary, is the
list owner. Her email
address is: [log in to unmask] .
USING THE LIST:
Send all new correspondence to [log in to unmask] . This is
called "sending mail to the list," because you send mail to a single
address and the listserv copies the message to all the people
subscribed. This address is also called the "list address."
You should send only correspondence to this address, not commands.
COMMANDS: (Not necessary for reading messages.)
All commands (sign-off, etc.) must be sent to the "LISTSERV address,"
which is [log in to unmask] You may leave the list
at any time by sending a "SIGNOFF ARSCLIST" command to
[log in to unmask]
You can also tell the listserv how you want it to confirm the
receipt of messages you send to the list. If you do not trust the
system, send a
"SET ARSCLIST REPRO" command and listserv will send you a copy of your
own messages, so that you can see that the message was distributed and
did not get damaged on the way. (It is currently preset this way.)
If you send a "SET ARSCLIST ACK
NOREPRO" command, the listserv will mail you a short acknowledgment
instead, which will look different in your mailbox directory.
Finally, you can turn off acknowledgments completely with "SET ARSCLIST NOACK
NOREPRO". Complete information on listserv commands can be
found in the listserv reference card, which you can request by sending an "INFO
REFCARD" command to [log in to unmask]
ARCHIVE and DIGEST:
Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can
request a list of the available archive files by sending an "INDEX
ARSCLIST" command to [log in to unmask] You can then order
these files with a "GET ARSCLIST LOGxxxx" command (where xxxx stands
for a file number you select,) or by using listserv's database search
facilities. Send an "INFO DATABASE" command for more
information on the latter. The list is also available in digest form.
If you wish to
receive the digested version of the postings, just issue a
SET ARSCLIST DIGEST command.
All messages posted to ARSClist are maintained in a publicly accessible
archive as an informational resource for ARSC members and others who might
benefit from this information. By posting to this list the
subscriber/poster agrees to have his or her message become part of the
permanent public archive.
ARSClist archives are also stored as a permanent part of the Conservation Online
website (CoOL) at:
http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byform/mailing-lists/arsclist/. The most
recent posting are also archived by the Listserv software at
