PNC/MLA does not maintain its own listserv/discussion list. Instead, we us the regional list (hlib-nw) maintained by the NN/LM PNR office in Seattle.
What Is The Purpose Of The HLIB-NW List?
The HLIB-NW List exists to facilitate electronic communications via the Internet among the health sciences library and health information community in the Northwest. It provides a forum for discussing practical, theoretical, and philosophical issues and for exchanging advice, information, ideas, and resources of interest to its intended audience. The list is maintained by Patricia Devine and Michael Boer. It debuted in November 1993, with 80 charter subscribers.
