New process for posting to Connect

  • 1.  New process for posting to Connect

    Posted Feb 24, 2021 09:46 AM

    Hello, UAIG members. 

    Please see the following information from ACRL about posting to the Connect space. In order to address the retirement of the Sympa system, this will now take the place of posting to the listserv.

    The UAIG ALA Connect home page now has discussion list functionality and subscribers can begin using the following discussion list address:



    When a member sends a message to the new Connect email address, it will post directly to your group's ALA Connect Community.  Additionally:

    • Members of this community will get an email notification with the full message. They can respond either directly via email or by logging into Connect and replying to the discussion post within the community.
    • Members can adjust their Connect settings to receive individual email notifications in real-time or a digest format.

    How do people subscribe?

    Current ACRL Members

    All ALA members have an ALA Connect account connected to their ALA login. Members of ACRL interest groups/sections are automatically added to the appropriate unit's Connect space when they add the section or interest group to their ALA-ACRL membership, and will have automatic access to the discussion list functionality. 


    Non-members are welcome to create a free ALA Connect account and have access to numerous resources. Non-members can post to this unit's list address once they create a free account, log in, and join the community.

    Please visit the Connect FAQ page for more information.

    All best,
