The eduCAT discussion list was created to facilitate discussion among educators, trainers, and practitioners in the cataloging and metadata fields.
You can join and leave this list at any time by following the directions below. All mailing list functions can be performed via email or by using a Web interface. We reserve the right to moderate these lists and to deny service to anyone who, in our sole discretion, is acting improperly.
In order to use the web interface to join or leave a list, change your list settings or post a message, you must first create a password for your mailing list account.
Create or change your mailing list password (even if you have forgotten your password)
After you have selected your password, you will receive a confirmation notice by email. Your new password will not take effect until you have responded to this confirmation notice.
Joining the eduCAT discussion list
To join the eduCAT list, fill out the following form. An e-mail message with a confirmation code will be sent to confirm your identity and prevent third parties from subscribing you against your will. Simply wait for this message to arrive, then follow the instructions to confirm the operation.
The eduCAT discussion list is available in both regular and digest form. Every time a new message is sent to eduCAT, it is forwarded to all list subscribers. Alternately, you can receive the messages in a single daily message. In that case, all of the messages that have been sent to the list in the past 24 hours are combined and mailed to you as a single email. That way, you receive a single email instead of several separate messages.
In order to receive the eduCAT list in digest form, you must already be a subscriber. Once you have subscribed, you can select the digest option using either the web interface (using the "change settings" link, below) or by sending the appropriate command via email (see below).
