Conntech -- Connecticut Libraries E-mail list


About Conntech
English (USA)

Conntech is an email discussion list for people interested in all aspects of libraries and librarianship in Connecticut. The list will be of greatest interest and value to those who are working in libraries in Connecticut. Conntech is provided by the Connecticut State Library (CSL). CSL welcomes respectful discussion of professional issues.

Subscribers will be able to post to the list. Subscribers will be able to select from immediate delivery (to receive each message separately, as it is sent to the list) or digest delivery (to receive one message with all postings grouped into a single e-mail sent either daily, weekly, or monthly) of fellow subscribers' messages. Non-subscribers' posts to the list will be forwarded to the list manager for appropriate action.

Posting to the list:
All posts represent the opinions of the poster. Diversity of opinion is welcomed. Posts are to be of a professional nature on topics relevant to Connecticut libraries. Posts containing information, discussion, and news are welcome.

Subscribers may use the list to share information about tools and resources (e.g. CSL, CLC, CLA, NELA, American Library Association [ALA] updates, grant opportunities, job announcements etc.). Commercial announcements and advertisements are not permitted, except those of a professional development or continuing education nature. Non-library related messages such as chain e-mails, advertising, or commercial marketing messages are not appropriate for this email distribution list.

Conntech list messages are archived and publicly accessible using search services, such as Google and Yahoo. When you reply to a Conntech message, the reply is directed to the poster of the message. If you use “reply all,” your reply will go to the poster and to the Conntech list.

While controversial or lively debates are welcome, please use the same etiquette as if the discussion were face-to-face in an atmosphere of respect and professionalism. Please refrain from typing in all caps, derogatory remarks, profanity, and personal attacks. Take care in sharing personal, confidential copyrighted or trademarked content to the list. Inappropriate posting will result in the deletion of the post and may result in moderating or barring future posts by the sender.

Providing information does not imply endorsement of materials or information by CSL.
