How do I subscribe to a listserv?

There are two different ways to subscribe to a listserv.

Using the listserv webpage

You can go to our listserv webpage and browse through the list to find the one you're searching for. Once you click on the name, you can enter your name and email address to subscribe to the list. If the listserv you are looking for is unlisted, you'll have to enter its name to be able to subscribe to it. Some lists have open subscription whereas for others, your subscription must be approved by the owner of the listserv before you can join it.

Email to

Another way to subscribe to a list is to send an email to with the following command in the body of the message (leave the subject blank):

subscribe listname firstname lastname

where listname is the name of the list. For example:

subscribe academy Ada Byron

You will have to confirm the request by email and then it will be processed according to the subscription configuration.
