The KSH listserve has been established to link
our membership across the state. The University of Kentucky has
agreed to host our society listserve - kyhistotechs-L@lsv.uky.edu
The listserve can function effectively for KSH
members in various ways. Notifications of meetings, symposia, etc.
can be disseminated to all members electronically, without having
to maintain your own email file of addresses, by sending this information
to the listserve email address above.
More importantly, the listserve can serve as
a forum for discussion, problem solving, etc. For example, if a
member has a question concerning a technique, or a problem associated
with a technique, they could simply send an email to the listserve
outlining the problem and anyone with a suggestion/remedy could
respond. All members of the listserve see the problem and the remedies
suggested by our society members. In addition these responses can
be archived for searching at a later date.
The listserve will be a valuable addition to the
website and society as a whole only if you, as an active member
of the KSH, participate. Please keep in mind that attachments are
not encouraged to be forwarded through the listserve - particularly
large jpeg images. It is most effective to paste any attachment
into the text of the message. For example, notification
and/or reminder of an upcoming KSH meeting is a very appropriate
way to use the listserve. In the text of the message link
the reader to the website where more detailed information, as well
as the ability to download driving instructions etc. can be obtained.
This makes effective use of both the listserve and the website.
To be added to the listserve simply email the
listserve editor (firstname.lastname@example.org)
requesting this. You should receive notification from the
listserve host welcoming you to the KSH listserve. Only listserve
members can post messages through the listserve.
