updated irregularly as issues crop up for resolution.

their e-mail address with their membership application. If you prefer,
you don’t have to subscribe to the mailing list, although most members
do find it a useful resource.

How do I post to the mailing list?

Assuming you’re a subscriber to the mailing list, send an e-mail with
what you want posted to

short description of the content of your posting.

Librarians. Everything on the mailing list should be directly related to
school libraries and those who work in them.

Do I need to have a .sig file? What is a .sig file?

A .sig file is just a short “signature” that appears at the bottom of
your e-mails. How you work with .sig files varies widely depending on
what e-mail cilent you use. For KASL-L, it’s considered good etiquette
to have at least your name, your school, and your community listed as
