LibIdaho is an email discussion list for people interested in all aspects of libraries and librarianship in Idaho. Membership is not limited to librarians, Idaho residents, or ILA members, but the list will probably be of greatest interest and value to those who are working in libraries in Idaho. LibIdaho is provided by the Idaho Library Association (ILA). ILA welcomes respectful discussion of professional issues.
Non-subscribers’ posts will be forwarded for moderation prior to being distributed to the list membership. Subscribers will be able to post to the list and will be able to select from immediate delivery and digest delivery of fellow subscribers. You do not need to be a member of ILA or ALA to join this distribution list.
All posts represent the opinions of the poster. Diversity of opinion is welcomed. Posts are to be of a professional nature on topics relevant to Idaho libraries. Information, discussion, and news are welcome.
The list may be utilized by subscribers sharing information about tools and resources (e.g. LiLI Databases, BCR member information, American Library Association updates, Grant opportunities, etc.). Commercial announcements and advertisements are not permitted, except those of a professional development or continuing education nature. Non-library related messages such as chain e-mails, product boycotts, advertising or commercial marketing messages are not appropriate for this email distribution list.
Common sense netiquette is requested. While controversial or lively debates are welcome, please use the same etiquette as if the discussion were face-to-face in an atmosphere of respect and professionalism. Please refrain from flaming, typing in all caps, derogatory remarks, and personal attacks. Take care in sharing personal, confidential copyrighted or trademarked content to the list.
Inappropriate posting will result in the deletion of the post and may result in barring future posts by the sender.
In an effort to ensure that the LibIdaho list meets subscribers’ expectations, ILA reserves the right to make judgments and to refuse messages that do not meet the list policy. Providing information does not imply endorsement of materials or information by ILA or the distribution list moderator.
The Idaho Library Association, a Chapter of the American Library Association (ALA), extends appreciation to ALA for hosting the LibIdaho mailing list at ala.org.
