Forever Free: Abraham Lincoln's Journey to Emancipation

Online Site Support Notebook: Electronic Discussion List

The ALA Public Programs Office will create an electronic discussion list for all Forever Free Tour Two participants. We will add the names of each exhibit coordinator and workshop attendee to the list unless we are requested not to do so. You will receive a password when you are subscribed.

The Public Programs Office subscription electronic discussion lists are intended for:

  • Substantive discussion of issues and ideas relating to public programs at libraries, such as formats, funding, etc.

  • Sharing information about library programming; especially cultural programming for adult community audiences.

  • Queries and advice to/from peers.

  • Announcements from the ALA Public Programs Office regarding opportunities and initiatives.

When submitting a message to a list, please keep in mind:

  • The lists are open, and anyone can subscribe, so all postings should be of a public, non-confidential nature.

  • All submissions should be in plain text without attachments.

  • If you simply reply to a posted message, you will be responding to the entire list, not just the sender. When responding to a message posted to the list, please copy the sender's email address and respond to them directly; reply to the posted message only when you wish to share your response with the entire list.

  • Basic rules of electronic mail etiquette are expected; e.g., anonymous submissions, character assassination, sharing confidential information and profanity are strictly prohibited.

  • If you are subscribed to any ALA list, please do NOT enable any auto-response for your email address. If you are going away and absolutely must explain to people that you won't be checking your email, please unsubscribe from the list first.
