To ensure listserv members have a positive experience, here are some basic guidelines to help experienced and new members. This document will be sent out periodically to the list as a friendly reminder of proper etiquette.
The archive allows you to go back and view the messages again. It is a helpful tool when looking for a thread of the discussion. To access the archive, go to the group’s webpage if you have bookmarked it or go to groups.google.com and click on the menu item that says My Groups. Click on the name of the group to find its webpage.
As a member of these groups, you can update/change your settings as needed. You can change your settings to get one email update per day or other timeframe, or get them as they are sent. Take a look around at the settings to see if you want to make any changes that make it more efficient for your needs.
