About the PNLA-L List

The PNLA-L mailing list is intended to cover a variety of library-related interests in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada. We hope you'll find the list useful and enjoy sharing in this unique community. If you have any questions about the Rules of the Road or how the list is run, please contact the list manager. Messages to this list should be addressed to pnla-l@yahoogroups.com

The list manager is Brian Hulsey, brian.hulsey@wcls.org

The following types of postings are encouraged on this list:

1. Job postings.  We encourage libraries throughout the region to advertise job openings on this list.

2.  Continuing education and other events.  Postings of educational opportunities and other events are always welcome. Go ahead and advertise. Just keep it library related and non-commercial (events that charge fees are okay, they just need to be more-or-less non-profit).

3.  Intellectual freedom.  Got an 'IF' problem?  Want to report on an IF 'event'?  Do it here. Please try to keep things non-political. There are two sides to every question.

4.  PNLA business.  The entire PNLA Board of Directors is subscribed and listening attentively to your ideas about PNLA. This means suggestions for programs at upcoming PNLA conferences, or any other comments or suggestions for the organization.

5.  Other stuff.  Any other topic you think would be of interest to library aficionados of the Northwest is fair game.  Observe basic netiquette, please.  Currently this list is open (anyone who has an email address can join the list) and unmoderated (only list members can post messages), but this can be changed in future if circumstances require it.

6. Observe basic netiquette, please. Flaming, baiting, and other forms of nasty email will force the list manager to do nasty things like issue warnings and unsubscribe offenders. Please try to keep it civil and non-personal.

7. Advertising. Due to the large numbers of vendors (who support us in so many ways), the PNLA list will accept advertisements for new books, services, etc. during the first week of each month. Please put ADV: in the subject heading for those of us without budgets to spend.

Free and open discussions are necessary to the well-being of libraries.

We hope you'll have an enjoyable experience conversing with colleagues in libraries far and wide.
