YALSA-L, YALSA’s oldest electronic discussion list, sunsetted today, after keeping subscribers posted on the lastest news and activities from YALSA and ALA since 1996. YALSA announced the decision to subscribers in May, giving them time to plan for the change.

YALSA will now distribute news on its events and activities through its Twitter account, on this blog (there’s even an RSS feed that’s just for YALSA News), on its homepage and, of course, through its six remaining electronic discussion lists, all of which provide a lively and informative forum for discussing teen services in libraries. YALSA-L’s archives will remain public and searchable at the YALSA-L homepage.

We planned to point YALSA-L’s 1500 subscribers to these resources via email this morning, but unfortunately, we inadvertently sent the wrong unsubscribe message. We apologize for the confusion this has caused. If you have any questions, you can leave them in the comments section of this blog post or you can contact me directly at skuenn@ala.org.

One Thought on “YALSA-L Calls It a Day

  1. I was quite scared when I got the message “Wou have been removed from the list…” (in Hungarian). 😀
