Subject: [ALCTScentral] ALCTS mailing list issues: ALCTScentral, PADG, and more

It has recently come to the attention of the ALCTS Office that random people have been silently unsubscribed from some of our electronic discussion lists. Please take the following actions to check your list subscriptions that are hosted by ALCTS and ALA:

 1.  Visit and log in (there are options for "First Log In" and "Lost Password" if needed)
 2.  Click on the "My Lists" button and you will see all of the lists to which you are subscribed

To subscribe to a new list:

 1.  Search for the list name from the home page or the menu bar at the upper right-hand part of your screen
 2.  Click on the list on the search results screen
 3.  Choose the "Subscribe" link on the left-hand side of your screen

You can come back to anytime to manage your subscription:

 *   Change your email address for any reason (under My Preferences)
 *   Unsubscribe from a list
 *   Access the list archive to review a discussion
 *   Choose to receive the messages in digest format instead of one email at a time
