OPLIN listservs

OPLIN hosts a number of listservs, which can be accessed at lists.oplin.org. The most popular listservs are listed at the bottom of this page – click on the list name for more information.

We are also pleased to offer a tool for searching the archives of the OPLINTECH mail list at OPLINTech Search. This search interface is easier to use than browsing the mail list archives, and you don't have to be a member of the OPLINTECH list to use it.

OPLIN also provides libraries with two publications dedicated to Ohio government news, which are distributed through listservs: The Hannah Report, and the Gongwer Ohio Report.


How can I subscribe (or unsubscribe) to one of the OPLIN e-lists?

OPLIN public email lists can be found at http://lists.oplin.org. From here you can subscribe or unsubscribe to a particular list, and access list archives and rosters of subscribers.

To subscribe or unsubscribe, simply click on the list which interests you. On the next page, follow the instructions to subscribe to your selected list. You will need to enter a password to create and manage your list subscriptions.


Can OPLIN host an e-list for my library?

Yes. See the current policy at http://www.oplin.org/content/policy-regard-library-e-list-hosting-service.


I am trying to send an attachment to the members of OPLINLIST or OPLINTECH, but they never receive it. What's wrong?

To help prevent the spread of viruses and worms, messages to the list are limited to 2 MB (2,000 KB) in size. Some attachments are larger than that, so the messages will be blocked. However, you can still send attachments directly to individual email addresses.
