GLIN-Announce Guidelines: August 1998

GLIN-Announce subscribers:

Attached (just as a refresher) are the guidelines for the GLIN-Announce
email list. **Keep this message for future reference**

Please note that if you ever want to refer back to a past GLIN-Announce
posting, there is a searchable monthly archive online at

And a reminder that any questions regarding subscribing/unsubscribing or
list protocol should be sent to me directly at manninen@glc.org. Please
refrain from posting these requests to the list.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Christine Manninen
GLIN-Announce List Manager
Great Lakes Commission

GLIN-Announce is a forum for sharing news of interest to
the Great Lakes community. Appropriate postings concern the
release of new reports, job opportunities, requests for
proposals, federal budget updates, and announcements of
regional conferences or special Great Lakes events.  

The list also is used to conduct GLIN business and to make
announcements about data and information placed online by
various partner organizations. The list is designed to
reach a broad spectrum of interests in the region.

Information requests pertaining to the Great Lakes or their
management also are appropriate, but GLIN-Announce should
NOT be used to discuss issues and it is normally expected
that people will not *reply* to the list. Other lists exist
or will be created for people to discuss special interests.

GLIN-Announce is a closed list. This means that only
subscribers can post directly to the list. Non-member
submissions are forwarded to the list owner for approval.
The subscriber list is managed by the GLIN project team at
the Great Lakes Commission.
