JISCmail is a service that runs electronic discussion lists for the UK higher and further education and research community. Provided by JANET (UK) and funded by the JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee), the service allows you to talk with other academics via electronic mail, to collaborate on projects, announce conferences, arrange meetings or just keep in touch with colleagues in your subject area. The lists cover a vast range of topics, and the site offers a search engine and alphabetical indexes to help users locate those of most interest and relevance. Instructions for joining and leaving lists are provided. If there is currently no list for a particular subject area, it may be possible to create one: information about this is also given. This description is based on that given in the JISC Resource Guide for the Arts and Humanities.
