STAMA Email List Established

In early September ASAP set up an email list on the new ASAP internet server in Canberra. This is an exciting venture which should really help draw together all those interested in the area not just in Australia but internationally as it is the first email list in the world focussed on these issues. The 'welcome page' is printed below and describes pretty clearly what we hope to achieve with the list.

Although the list is only available to those with internet email access it is an important tool that will allow us to keep in touch with the rest of the world and we will endeavour to pass on all important notices and articles through this newsletter and the History of Australian Science Newsletter.

All members of the STAMA SIG should receive HASN. If you do not, please contact Gavan McCarthy so that you can be added to the mailing list.

To subscribe send the message:

	subscribe stama
to (leave the subject line blank).

It's that easy! I look forward to seeing you on the 'List'

This list is for the discussion, publication and promotion of issues relating to science, technology and medicine archives. The list has been established by the Australian Science Archives Project to serve the members of:

Other interested groups and individuals are welcome to participate in this list especially members of:

and any other special interest groups working in this field. If you belong to such a group that is not mentioned above could you notify the list so its name can be added.

As you can see by the institutions mentioned above we are taking the field to include artefacts as well as records as the two are so often intertwined in the science, technology and health care arenas and many of us have to deal with mixed collections. The aim of the list is to be supportive, informative, creative and tolerant.


Many of us will be using different email software systems so it would be useful if all postings could be addressed to STAMA in some form, i.e.:

and to be signed off in a style of your choosing.

This should help all of us maintain our email in a useful manner.

All postings should/must contain a Subject line entry. Any thoughts on protocols for this or should we just let it evolve? Use your common sense.

The hypertext archives of the mailing list are available through the STAMA home page on:

There is also a link in from ASAPWeb [] to the STAMA page.

The Listowner reserves the right to remove subscribers from list who do not conform with the general objectives of the group.

Yours (I am new at this)
