4th Year Elective Coordinators - “ELECTCRSCOORD” LISTSERV GUIDELINES
The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA maintains the ElectCrsCoord listserv (electronic mailing lists). This listserv is comprised of the student coordinators for elective clerkships to support official curricular and administrative communications.
OWNERSHIP: The Dean of Student Affairs (Lee T. Miller, MD) and the Dean of Curricular Affairs (Neveen El-Farra, MD) are the owners of the list. Any questions or concerns regarding its use can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MEMBERSHIP: Fourth Year Elective Course Coordinators are members of the ElectCrsChairs listserv. The membership list is managed by Gezelle Miller and Jason Bergschneider. Any changes to the list can be sent to email@example.com.
OFFICIAL USERS OF THE ELECTCRSCHAIRS: The listserv is used by the DGSOM administration. This list may not be used by companies, charities, religious organizations, etc.
LISTSERV RULES AND ETIQUETTE:
• Appropriate professional etiquette is expected of all list members and official users of the lists.
• The " ElectCrsCoord " list is private and unmoderated.
• Authors of emails sent to the lists should use a "signature block" or sign their email.
• When using ElectCrsCoord, do not include other e-mail addresses with the listserv address. If too many e-mail addresses are included with the listserv address, the e-mail may be kicked back. To avoid this problem, you should to re-send the e-mail to the other addressees.
• Follow any and all guidelines that the listowner has posted; the listowner establishes the local "netiquette" standards for her/his list.
• If another person posts a comment or question that is inappropriate, do NOT reply to the list.
• When quoting another person, edit out whatever isn't directly applicable to your reply. Don't let your automatically quote the entire body of messages you are replying to when it's not necessary. Take the time to edit any quotations down to the minimum necessary to provide context for your reply. Nobody likes reading a long message in quotes for the third or fourth time, only to be followed by a one line response: "Yeah, me too."
• Use discretion when forwarding a long mail message to group addresses or distribution lists. It's preferable to reference the source of a document and provide instructions on how to obtain a copy. If you must post a long message, warn the readers with a statement at the top of the mail message. Example: WARNING: LONG MESSAGE. Remember, long message or large attachments can fill your email account and keep you from receiving important curricular/administrative emails.
• When posting a question to the list, request that responses be directed to you personally. Post a summary or answer to your question to the group.
• When replying to a message, check the address to be certain it's going to the intended location (person or group).
