- The AHRC-funded Claimed From Stationers Hall music research network has a JiscMail Discussion List. JiscMail offers the facility to set up discussion lists about education or research interests on a particular topic, carried out by email. Correspondents generally have some connection with higher education, but this is not compulsory. We’ve set up a list for sharing information about research interests in the historic British legal deposit music registered at Stationers Hall, and our groupname is MUSIC-FROM-STATIONERS-HALL.
How to subscribe? Basically, there are two ways of subscribing:-
- You can use this link: https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?SUBED1=MUSIC-FROM-STATIONERS-HALL&A=1 New subscribers can complete their details to join the list.
- Subscribers can also join the list by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as follows:-
Subject: Subscribe Message: SUBSCRIBE MUSIC-FROM-STATIONERS-HALL Firstname Lastname
You should receive a confirmation email; if it doesn’t pop up in your inbox, it may be worth checking “junk” or other filter folders. You then need to confirm the Jisc confirmation, quite promptly (otherwise they assume you didn’t mean to subscribe)! Please get in touch if you have any problems.
- You’ll find instructions at the FAQ for Subscribers page: http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/help/subscribers/faq.html.
- What is JiscMail? Visit http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/about/whatisjiscmail.html
- Can I use institutional access? Certainly. If you’re in a British HE institution, you can use institutional access (Shibboleth), as you would with most electronic resources.
- Are there any rules? The JiscMail Service Policy document, http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/policyandsecurity/ describes the way in which Jisc expects the service to be used, by list owners and subscribers.
