About the UICGIS Listserv


UIC GIS Listserv

After a dormant period, the UIC GIS Email List (Listserv) is back. The UICGIS List is a subscription email list for all things GIS that would be of interest to the UIC community, such as job postings, GIS-related events, GIS classes, etc. You can subscribe to this email list to receive these emails submitted by others subscribed to the list, or you can send out your own announcements about GIS to the rest of the list.

To send a message to all the people currently subscribed to the UICGIS list, just send or forward an email to UICGIS@LISTSERV.UIC.EDU like you would any other email. Then, the email will be distributed to all UICGIS list subscribers.
