Email Discussion Lists
ASEE Engineering Libraries Division (ELD) e-mail discussion list guidelines
ELD supports two primary email discussion lists, ELDnet-l and ELD-L. The two lists have some traits and guidelines in common, while others differ.
Needed – [type of material]
Examples: Needed – journal article, Needed – conference paper, Needed – technical report
In that way, subscribers may readily identify those postings by their subject lines alone. List subscribers needing other information should avoid using the word “Needed” as the first word of their posting’s subject line.
Neither list supports announcements where a poster is offering content (particularly journal issues/volumes) to a good/new home. ELD used to support a “duplicates exchange” service, but that is now being run independently of ELD. If you have content to offer, please contact Linda Yamamoto at:
Announcement = publisher offers a brief (2-3 sentence) blurb stating that X new product or service is now available (or will be as of a specific date) and to please contact Y person or go to Z Web page for more information concerning content, pricing, etc.
Advertisement = publisher offers a full information spread that has a basic product announcement plus potentially detailed info about content, pre- and post- publication pricing, reviews, etc. – similar to the content of print product advertisements and brochures that publishers send through the mail.
ELD-L is an electronic discussion list designed exclusively for use by the members of the Engineering Libraries Division (ELD) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). It was created for information dissemination within the Division and for discussion of Division-specific issues that previously could have been discussed only at the annual conference. Those members of ELD who have e-mail addresses constitute the entirety of the ELD-L subscriber list. Subscription to ELD-L is closed, with new subscribers added to the list only by the list owner(s) or editor(s). Click on the ELD-L link to find directions on how to subscribe.
ELDNET-L is an electronic discussion list addressing issues related to or of interest to engineering and related subject area libraries and librarians. ELDNET-L is sponsored by the Engineering Libraries Division (ELD) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The membership of ELD constitutes the core of ELDNET-L, but subscription to the list is open to non-ASEE/ELD members as well. Click on the ELDNET-L link to find directions on how to subscribe.
