Mailing Lists - University of Chicago Mailing Lists Overview
With University of Chicago Mailing Lists, you can obtain email addresses for departments, groups, or events and avoid the aggravation of manually maintaining lists of individual email addresses. Mailing lists at the University of Chicago serve two distinct functions:
- An easy method for broadcasting information within university organizations. For example, a campus bird-watching club might use a mailing list to post sightings for all the members to enjoy.
- A convenient line of communication for a department, event, or project that includes people both inside and outside the university. For example, the Department of Classics might use a mailing list address to discuss registration and attendance for an Ovid conference with scholars around the world.
Mailing lists can be as small as one subscriber, or as large as several hundred people.
The flexibility of mailing lists mean that they can be modified to accommodate the changing needs of the subscribers. Mailing lists also mitigate the inconvenience of relying on one staff member’s personal email address for departmental communications.
