JISCMail Discussion Lists

shutterstock 503541808

AGCAS members' ability to call on the collective brains of nearly 3000 knowledgeable and cooperative colleagues is the envy of other professions. AGCAS membership gives access to a wide range of JISCMail discussion lists, which allow you to tap into the wisdom of our community.

Discussion lists offer the opportunity to:

  • Share good practice, information and resources
  • Inform or initiate a discussion
  • Consult with other members on specific topics of interest
  • Ask questions and exchange ideas
  • Communicate with others who have similar responsibilities in other services

HOW TO JOIN

To join an AGCAS managed discussion list, email a request.
