Lyris Lists

Lyris is an email management tool offering email list. An email list is a collection of individual email addresses that you can contact all at once. Individual members are subscribed to the list and can "write the list" at any time. Some faculty find it useful to organize their program communication through email lists. This can emcompass one-way communication where messages can be sent only from the faculty to a program list, or more group-oriented contribution and communication efforts, where all students have the ability to send to the list.

Once your Academic Computing Staff has helped you set up a list for your program they will inform you of the list (or you can request it) and how to simply administer it. To send an email to the list, send the email to: yourlistname@lists.evergreen.edu.

There are essentially two views of the lists, other than via your email client. You can view all lists currently in use at Evergreen on the web at http://www.evergreen.edu/lists.

And if you have a list already set up, you can also manage the list on the web (you must login). Click on "Utilities" and from there you can browse all of the options for your list.
