ASHA's audiology hotlines via LISTSERV.

A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR ASHA AUDIOLOGISTS
-- ASHA AUDIOLOGY ELECTRONIC HOTLINES ARE UP
AND RUNNING!

WELCOME TO A NEW AGE IN COMMUNICATION FOR
ASHA AUDIOLOGISTS

Rev up your computer, plug in your modem, tap your
keyboard or move your mouse-- you've now joined your
colleagues for interactive electronic communication. News,
dialogue, facts, and information that affect the daily lives of
audiologists are at your fingertips through the wonders of
Internet and ASHA's 3 Audiology Hotlines! (FEE FREE!)

ASHA is pleased to offer its members electronic mailing lists
that will be accessible to any audiologist who has the
computer hardware and software capability to send and
receive Internet electronic mail (e-mail). This technology is
known as LISTSERV.

HOTLINES = LISTSERV 

The LISTSERV approach is different from an electronic
Bulletin Board System (BBS) in that you will not need to *dial
in* to another computer to participate in the on-line
discussions.  A BBS is similar to going to a
library to read a magazine. LISTSERV, on the other hand, is
comparable to subscribing to that magazine * you will
automatically receive every "issue" after you subscribe. Unlike
a magazine, however, LISTSERV technology allows members
to contribute *articles* that are then *published** i.e., sent to
all subscribers - faster and more often than is possible with
printed materials.

A list may or may not be "moderated".  The 1 "unmoderated"
list accepts and distributes all e-mail from any subscriber to
the full list.  In a moderated list, all messages are monitored to
make sure the message is relevant to subscribers. 

CHOOSE TO SUBSCRIBE TO 1, 2 OR ALL 3!

 1 asha-aud-forumThis is an unmoderated list available for all
subscribers to discuss any issue an individual chooses.
 
 2 asha-aud-focusThis particular list is used to discuss a
specific topic for a designated timeframe.  Discussion topics
will be "published" by the list administrator with contributions
by any subscriber available for reading by all subscribers.
 
 3 asha-aud-headlinesThis is a moderated list used for
providing information about ASHA activities, products,
actions, and other specific and general information related to
ASHA member audiologists.  

SUBSCRIBING IS EASY --

ASHA Audiologists may subscribe to an electronic mailing list
by:

* sending e-mail (from any system that can reach Internet
addresses; e.g. CompuServe, America Online, university-
based e-mail system, etc.) to the following e-mail address for
each desired list:

	1  asha-aud-forum-request at postman.ncm.com

	2  asha-aud-focus-request at postman.ncm.com

	3  asha-aud-headlinesrequest at postman.ncm.com

	* Next enter the following text as your e-mail message:

                         subscribe (Firstname Lastname)

For example, if Jane Smith with e-mail address,
jsmith at school.edu, wanted to subscribe to the Audiology
Focus List, she would send the following e-mail:

To: asha-aud-focus-request at postman.ncm.com

From: jsmith at school.edu

Message: subscribe (Jane Smith)

Do not include any other text in the message. Don't forget to
send separate e-mail messages to subscribe to the other lists.
Your e-mail address is added to each hotline list automatically
and you will be sent a message indicating that you have been
successfully added to the list. At that time, you will receive all
messages sent to each individual hotline.


HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR REMARKS 

Contributions will be accepted for both the asha-aud-forum
and asha-aud-focus lists. ASHA staff will make submissions
to the asha-aud-headlines list. 

	* Send your e-mail submissions to either the
asha-aud-forum or the asha-aud-focus lists, which will
automatically be distributed to all list subscribers, to:
        	             asha-aud-forum at postman.ncm.com

	                                or
 
     	  asha-aud-focus at postman.ncm.com   

To remove yourself from any list, send e-mail to the list and
only enter the following as your *subject*: Unsubscribe
You may rejoin the list at any time following the above
instructions.
