Related Lists (Regular Item)

Thu, 6 Oct 1994 20:06:38 EDT

For your edification, there are a number of related listserver lists
and newsfeed services which deal in anthropological topics. This list
is not all-inclusive, so please feel free to tell me about other ones.
To search for lists you might be interested in, mail LISTSERV@UBVM (or
your local listserver) the message LIST GLOBAL /xxxx (substituting the
search string for the xxxx). As usual, send any comments to me at
ANTOWNER@UBVM. Thanks. (Some of these items were compiled with the aid
of Allen H. Lutins <>.)


Generally, to subscribe to a list, send the command SUB list_name
your_name, to LISTSERV@address. If that fails, contact the listowner.
Each list has its own rules about who can join and post, but most are
open to all.
