Mailing lists

IASA has two kinds of mailing lists: "IASA News", and the IASA listserv.


IASA has created a new mailing list for the purpose of maintaining closer contact with members and guests. The format of this list is an HTML email that you can receive regularly. It contains information, offers, news articles and reminders that are of interest to the IASA community. This new mailer is not meant to replace the listserv. It differs in format from the conversational nature of the listserv and instead serves as a sort of newsletter for the IASA community.

To join the mailing list, please visit our sign-up page:


The IASA listserv is intended to improve communication among IASA Members, Supporters and the public at large. It has over 850 subscribers. Subscribers may post messages to the listserv.

You do not need to be a IASA Member or Supporter to join. By joining the list, you automatically receive e-mails with news from IASA. The list encourages members to ask and answer questions and to take part in discussions of relevance to our work.

Except for announcements from IASA officers about IASA matters, all other contributions to the listserv are the authors' responsibility and do not represent the views of IASA.

The IASA Listserv is kindly hosted and managed by the National Library of Norway.
