However, the most important thing to do right now is to make sure you update your eGroup settings are set up correctly. Currently, the default setting for the eGroups is "Digest," which means you'll receive one email a day for all activity on the discussion group. If you want "Real Time" (and you know you do!!) then you'll need to go in and change the default setting to change it to "Real Time." You can also set it to either "Digest" or even "No Email" if you want to keep all the communications out of your email (you just have to remember to go to the Community website for any new messages.) One other option to keep it out of your email is that you can have all of the conversations of these groups going to your RSS feed reader.
Here's the steps you need to do to change your eGroup settings to Real Time:
1. Go to the AALL Community website - http://community.aallnet.org - and sign in
2. In the "Our Community" Section, click on the link to adjust your subscription settings
4. You may need to go to your email SPAM filter and add the following two addresses to the white list to make sure they aren't pushed into your Postini or other SPAM filter files.
Remember this is only for those official AALL listservs. So, listservs like Law-Lib or PrivateLawLibraries will continue to be email based systems and won't change. You'll still get all those Ron Huttner, Leslie Germaine and ILL request emails in real time, directly to your inbox.
Here is the email that AALL's Chris Sawa sent out on the topic:
