Educational Listservs

Here are some resources, and some links to resources, which will provide teachers with information which will allow them to make effective use of listservs. These resources/links fall into four categories, as shown below. Please read our disclaimer.
CLN's Network Nuggets
Network Nuggets is a CLN listserv serving thousands of K-12 teachers around the world. Each school day, our moderator sends a message to the list members identifying an educational web site that he has visited recently that contains educationally relevant resources. Occasionally, he will review several web sites that have a common theme.

List Archives
A number of the more popular educational lists store the messages from their list in archives which can be accessed even if you aren't a member. We've found a couple of WWW sites which provide such archives.

List Directories
Looking for information on a particular educational list (e.g., its mailing address, how to subscribe) or interested in finding a list which covers your field or special interest? There are hundred of educational lists, but finding them can be quite difficult. Fortuntately, there are a number of directories which provide "a list of listservs" which can be browsed or searched.
  • [An] Educator's Guide to Email Lists This page has information on hundreds of lists with educational relevance. These are organized under about 30 topics.
  • E-mail Discussion Lists and Electronic Journals An alphabetically arranged collection of education-centered discussion groups, focussing primarily on general education, K-12 education, education technology and education reform.
  • Liszt, the Mailing List Directory Here's a searchable database of over 55,000 listservs of all kinds. The catalog is updated frequently.
  • Publically Accessible Mailing Lists A huge list of mailing lists (of all types). Browse through it either alphabetically by name or by subject.
  • Search the List of Lists This site allows you to search a directory of special interest group mailing lists available on the Internet. You can also submit updates for the description of an existing mailing-list or add a new entry for the list.
