Email discussion lists
An email discussion list or listserv is a method of communicating with a group of people via email. Email discussion lists can be ‘open’ or ‘closed’. A‘closed’ email discussion list means that messages sent to the list are private and only people who are subscribed to the list can send to and receive messages from the list. An 'open' email discussion list still requires people to be subscribe if they wish to email to the list, however messages sent to the list will not be private.
There are a number of email discussion lists that are relevant to you:
