What is the MLAPhil-L mailing list?
MLAPhil-L is the official Email Discussion list of the Philadelphia Regional Chapter of the Medical Library Association. It was launched in Spring 2007, replacing the listserv email@example.com. Its primary purpose is to complement the publication of The Chronicle by allowing immediate communication across the membership.
MLAPhil-L is expected to be used to announce imminent Chapter activities, distribute time-sensitive MLA documents, share with Chapter member issues and decisions of their board, and provide a forum for discussion of relevant issues among Chapter members. MLAPhil-L may also be used to broadcast other appropriate items of general interest to Chapter members, such as job openings and changes.
