ALA Council Committee
FYI - Message from ITTS:
ITTS has confirmed a problem with messages being sent out from our ALA Council’s Sympa mailing list because of our spam blocking service. More information about this problem can be found on the ITTS News blog., but a fix is not expected to be implemented until sometime next week.
Until the problem is resolved, the best way for Council to communicate is via its ALA Connect group. We’ve turned on a new feature that lets you start a Connect discussion by sending an email rather than logging in to the website to post something. You can even attach a file to the email and it will get attached to the Connect discussion. This means you can use your Connect group the exact same way you use your mailing list.
To start a new Connect discussion via email, send a message to:
Note that by default, only members of the Council group in Connect can send to this email address, so it’s exactly the same as using your Sympa list.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about this.
I thought the Council list seemed awfully quiet. I asked Lois Ann Gregory about this and got this response:
"The Council and several other ALA e-lists are down. The ALA ITTS dept. is working on the problem. In the meantime, the ALA Council will need to communicate via CONNECT. We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause everyone. As soon as I receive more information on this issue, I will inform the Council and others through CONNECT ."
Posting here in hopes of reaching people signed up to receive notifications and wondering what happened to the list. - Daniel Cornwall, Alaska Chapter Councilor
