LIS Listserv Instructions 

The Library and Information Science program at CUA maintains several lists that serve our community:

Student Listserv (LIBSCI-L)

Because many of our students live, work and study away from CUA's main campus, this listserv is the primary means of communication between the school and the students. NOTE: It is assumed that students are subscribed and many important messages are distributed only via the listserv.

To unsubscribe from the Student listserv:

  • Send an e-mail from the account you wish to unsubscribe to: listserv[at]lists.cua.edu.
  • In the body of the message, include the following code: SIGNOFF LIBSCI-L

To send a message to the Student listserv once you are subscribed:

  • Send an e-mail from the account with which you are subscribed to: LIBSCI-L[at]lists.cua.edu
    Note: listserv moderators reserve the right to review messages before broadcasting.
