EM Center Mailing Lists

Starting with the new fiscal year (2017), the EMC has implemented a set of official IU-sponsored mailing lists to help the staff more easily stay in contact with the users of the JEOL JEM 1010, the JEOL JEM 1400plus and the JEOL JEM 3200FS, and with the faculty who oversee individuals working in the EMC.

 

The EMC will create additional mailing lists if and when it becomes useful and/or necessary. There are currently four separate mailing lists:

Available Mailing Lists (Jan 2017)
   
mailing list e-mail address description
   
EMC-FACULTY-L@INDIANA.EDU faculty who oversee users of EMC equipment
EMC-1010-USERS-L@INDIANA.EDU active users of the JEOL JEM 1010
EMC-1400PLUS-USERS-L@INDIANA.EDU active users of the JEOL JEM 1400plus
EMC-3200-USERS-L@INDIANA.EDU active users of the JEOL JEM 3200FS

Anyone can subscribe or unsubscribe from these lists by sending an empty e-mail to list@list.indiana.edu that has one of the following as the e-mail's subject:

SUBSCRIBE EMC-FACULTY-L
UNSUBSCRIBE EMC-FACULTY-L
SUBSCRIBE EMC-1010-USERS-L
UNSUBSCRIBE EMC-1010-USERS-L
SUBSCRIBE EMC-1400plus-USERS-L
UNSUBSCRIBE EMC-1400plus-USERS-L
SUBSCRIBE EMC-3200-USERS-L
UNSUBSCRIBE EMC-3200-USERS-L

General information about using these mailing lists can be found both here and here. Also, although it is not absolutely necessary, it is easier for the EMC if users subscribe to these mailing lists using IU accounts.

These are moderated mailing lists, meaning that when members of a list send an e-mail to the rest of the list, that message is not posted until one of the list administrators approves. This also applies to list subscriptions (i.e., a new member is not subscribed to a list until one of the administrators approves the membership), but not to unsubscriptions.

The mailing lists for the 1010, 1400plus and 3200FS allow the EMC to reach specific users of those instruments with information such as service interruptions, unexpectedly available instrument time, best practices for using the instrument and changes in instrument policy. Everyone who uses EMC equipment should be a member of the 1010 mailing list and it will also be used to inform facilty users of general policy changes within EMC, staff vacations and similar things that affect more than a single piece of equipment.

The faculty mailing list is designed both to inform faculty of EMC policy changes, staff vacation, etc., and also to allow the EMC to solicit information from the faculty with regard to things like recent publications that made use of EMC facilities, grants and proposals that specifically mention the EMC and overall future directions for the EMC. The faculty should feel free to subscribe to the mailing lists for equipment, but this is something that the faculty must do individually (and not something that the EMC automatically does).

Remember, at present, everyone who uses the EMC facilities should be a member of the 1010 user group.
