Accessing, using and understanding the JagLists

*This includes sending and receiving Genmails*

Georgia Perimeter College offers the JagLists listserv as a convenient way to communicate with students, faculty and staff that offers unique features. Jaglists allows the GPC community to create and manage electronic "mailing lists" that have advantages over traditional e-mail address books for those wishing to expand communication capabilities and flexibility. Also, a message no longer has to be in plain text. Now you can use HTML to create elaborate and expressive messages, including using a built-in HTML editor.

Some key features of Jaglists are:

  • List subscribers can subscribe or unsubscribe to lists at any time.
  • Lists are owned by an individual or position in an office.
  • A lists owner is responsible for content.
  • Communications submitted to the list can moderated if so desired.
  • List subscribers can specify options to receive posts individually, or periodically in a consolidated digest form.
  • List subscribers can search message archives.
  • List subscribers can temporarily suspend subscriptions if they will be away.

Here are some ideas for what you can do with a listserv:

  • Advisory Task Forces/Committees/Groups.
  • Department Faculty Groups.
  • Special Interest Discussion Groups: Create listserv around industry niches, special interest groups or sections.
  • Alumni Groups: Create listserv targeted around disciplines or year of attendance.
