Listserv Guidelines

We ask your cooperation in complying with the following:

  • All posts should be related to WALDO library issues.

  • All posts should be composed in plain text, without any nonstandard email "stationery" or fonts or colors.

  • Please do not send attachments or encoded text to the list.  Most mailers have a menu option to turn attachments and encoding off. Please keep in mind that not every subscriber on the list has Word or Acrobat installed, but plain text can be read by everyone.

  • Because some list members pay for their access either on a per message basis or by volume, please keep your messages concise and keep quoting of old material to the minimum necessary.  In particular, watch out if your mailer automatically appends the entire text of the message you respond to at the end. If this is the case, be sure to edit the quoted material so that only the few lines relevant to your post are quoted from previous postings.

  • Do not repost material appearing on this list elsewhere without first asking permission of the original author of the material.  However, that does not mean your list correspondence can be considered private; you should treat anything you send to the list as something that was said publicly.

  • Please try to keep your subject headers appropriate to the topic discussed in your mail. Please change the subject headers if your reply drifts from the original topic.

  • Diverse opinions are welcome. However, we ask that you treat other list members with respect.
