An electronic mailing list is an organized collection of people with e-mail access who send information back and forth to each other about a particular interest.

The following is a list of mailing lists recommended for Kansas librarians. If you subscribe to only one mailing list, KANLIB-L is a good choice. By clicking on the 'Subscribe/More Info' button, you can subscribe to the list, request more information about that list, or issue other list commands.

You can subscribe to ESU's SLIM related lists at http://slimlist.emporia.edu/mailman/listinfo
