American Sign Language & Deaf Studies: LISTSERVS/Discussion groups

This is a research guide for ASL.

LISTSERVS/Discussion groups

Listservs and discussion groups are other important sources of information that complement more traditional sources (books, journals, magazines).  Listservs are e-mail group messaging systems on specific topics or subjects--  listservs route e-mail messages to all subscribers or members of the list.

There are no costs for subscribing.  Though there are listservs and discussion groups on many topics, listed below are several for sign language and interpreting. Joining a listserv gives you an opportunity to stay ahead of the curve in your field because it can provide cutting edge discussions on theories and developments within your area of interest or expertise.

Though most listservs are open to the general public, there are highly specialized lists that have restricted access.  CAUTION:  listservs can generate a great deal of e-mail activity; be selective.  It is advisable initially to join one or two lists to monitor the number of messages generated daily.

Once a list receives your request to join, instructions will be sent to your e-mail account explaining the lists' rules and policies.
