ALL-SIS New discussion platform

5 years ago this September, the listserv program was born. (Yet another great invention of the heady-days of the 80’s). Until now nothing has taken its place as the primary tool for groups to privately share ideas and preserve the conversation.

Today ALL-SIS is leaving our listserv and moving to a new eGroups platform through AALLNET. As we say goodbye to the other 80’s invention, the Space Shuttle program, let’s part ways with the ALL-SIS list.

Below are instructions from Chris Siwa on how to continue our discussion with 21 century technology.



I just wanted to inform you that I have completed the SIS discussion list migration from the current discussion list platform to the new, enhanced eGroups on the My Communities platform.  All of the main SIS communities are synced with the SIS rosters in our membership database, and all current AALL members that are up-to-date with their SIS membership dues have been added to their respective communities.

Please remind your SIS members to update their notification settings if they haven’t already.

1. To update your notification settings, go to My Communities and click on My Subscriptions under the Discussions tab. Then you may opt to receive notifications in real time, as a daily digest, PDA (real time, but in plain text format for mobile devices), opt to not receive any emails, or unsubscribe altogether.

2. Please also make sure to whitelist or add to your safe senders the following email addresses:


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
