How to Subscribe to the Publib Listserve

The recent migration of Publib to OCLC resulted in a non-intuitive subscription process.  As of the time of this posting, the module is incorrectly configured and Publib archives are in a private area.  The following steps are a work-around that will allow new subscribers to register.  These steps should also make it apparent how to access the archives.

Update – Jan 15, 2012:   The following process provided by OCLC will allow new subscribers to register without using the steps below for the GUI: 

  • From the email address you wish to use for your interaction with the list, send an email to:  listserv@webjunction.org and put subscribe publib in the body.  You can put this in the subject line as well, but it is not required. (Note from editor: leave subject line blank OR put subscribe publib in it)

  1. Bless you! I have been going in circles for days trying to figure out how to subscribe to PUBLIB. I was ready to give up.

    • I’ve subscribed and get postings fine – BUT when I post something, it never shows up and eventually I get a message that the email bounced. I got confirmation I joined. I can can successfully send commands to LISTSERV@OCLC.ORG like index publib, BUT when I post to publib@LISTSERV.OCLC.ORG it does not post and bounces as undeliverable “publib@LISTSERV.OCLC.ORG
      A communication failure occurred during the delivery of this message. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please try resending this message later, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.” No help or support appears on the web interface. Help anybody ?

  3. How do I post to publib? I’m a subscriber but I can’t find that information anywhere… Thanks.

  4. I have sent three requests to subscribe and have not received any confirmation(s).
    The site in step 1 does not load in Mozilla or IE.
    Is there anyone who can help?
