***Cross-posted to various discussion lists; kindly forgive the

Good afternoon colleagues,

I recently started a new position as a cataloging librarian for a library
services and staffing company headquartered in Wilton, CT -- I am located
in lovely Fort Wayne, IN.  One of the benefits of the position is my
ability to telecommute from home.  One of my first actions in my new
position was to look for resources for telecommuting librarians and a
place to be able to network and have discussions with other telecommuters
on a regular and ongoing basis.

Currently, there is no place for such exchanges to take place.  I am
pleased to announce the creation of TelecommutingLibrarians, a new
electronic list that

I hope will help address this need.


This list is intended to provide a forum for discussion of ideas and
issues related to telecommuting in libraries and for current or future

work environment.

We welcome subscription and participation by all.  We believe that this
list will be of particular interest to those already telecommuting but
everyone is



If you would like to subscribe to the new list, please visit the list

The list is unmoderated.

We hope to see you there soon!
