E-forums

CIG e-forums are one or two-day, moderated and facilitated electronic discussion forums that provide an opportunity for librarians and information staff to discuss specific topics of relevance to knowledge organisation, metadata, etc. The e-forum discussion list works like an email discussion list: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion.

These discussions are free of charge and available to anyone who wishes to subscribe to the list. Once you have subscribed you can access all previous e-forum contributions by searching the archives.

Subscribe

Go to the e-forum web site: http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/CIG-E-FORUM.

Click the "Subscribe" link at the top left-hand side

Enter your name and the email address where you'd like to receive the e-forum messages (or if you already have a JISCMail listserv password, follow the instructions to enter that).

You will receive an email message containing a confirmation code. Simply wait for this message to arrive, then follow the instructions to confirm the operation.

You can come back to http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/CIG-E-FORUM anytime to manage your subscription:

  • cancel/unsubscribe after the e-forum or at any time
  • access the list archive to review a discussion
  • choose to receive the messages in digest format instead of one email at a time
