Resource Liaison Listservs
Much of the communication that occurs between Resource Liaisons and CDL staff regarding licensed resources occurs via email.
There are a number of useful announcement-only lists (CDLINFO-L, CDLALERT-L, DLINSTRUCT-L and GENRES-L) that will be useful in your role as resource liaison -- these lists are not limited to RL's only -- please feel free to recommend these lists to your UC library peers. Instructions on joining this list are below.
You will be added to the RESOURCE-L list and any relevant platform specific lists for your assigned resource -- these lists are used for sharing information from CDL staff to Resource Liaisons, and as a discussion forum for topics raised by CDL staff or individual RL's. Messages sent to this list will be received by the Resource Liaisons, as well as the CDL collections staff.
The RLREPORT-L@ucop.edu list is designed to be the primary conduit for Resource Liaisons to share information with CDL staff, including the Resource Liaison Coordinator. RLREPORT-L@ucop.edu should be cc'ed on correspondence with the vendor, as needed. Items that should be sent to this list include trouble reports, planned changes to resource, announcements for CDLINFO or for CDLAlerts, or anything else that is Resource specific and not suitable to the Resource-L list. All RLs may post messages to this list. Only CDL staff may read messages posted to this list.
All Resource Liaisons should sign up for the following lists:
CDLINFO-LPurpose: CDLINFO-L is designed to inform UC Librarians, and the UC community, about the progress of the CDL, policy issues under discussion, and newly available electronic resources. We hope that subscribers from the UC libraries will pass on selected information from the newsletter to faculty, staff, and students on their campuses, as appropriate. CDLINFO is also published on the Web at /cdlinfo/
