QuestionPoint Mailing List

17 09 2009

A few people have asked me lately how they could subscribe to the QuestionPoint mailing list. Postings to this list are pretty light; its main use is for up to the minute status updates on the stability of the service and news about restarts of the software when it is acting up (which has been too frequent lately).

Quoting from the QuestionPoint-L web page on the OCLC site, here’s how to subscribe:

All QuestionPoint users associated with an active QuestionPoint account are welcome to subscribe to this list.

This list is only for QuestionPoint members so please do not submit a subscription request unless you have a QuestionPoint ID number.

To request a subscription, send an e-mail message to David Leslie at with the subject of “QuestionPoint list request”.

In the body of your message, include:

  • Your name
  • E-mail address
  • Library name
  • Your QuestionPoint logon ID number

Once we activate your subscription, you receive two e-mail messages:

  • A confirmation of your subscription, with information about sending a message to the list, options for receiving a message, and removing yourself from the list. Save this cofirmation so you can refer to it later if needed.
  • Usage guidelines for the list.

The list archives can be found on the Subscriber’s Corner page.
