INTERNET ACCESS AT PACE

Pace students, faculty and staff currently have internal access to the Internet through the Pace Network. Wireless access is also available at majority of Pace's Wireless locations.

Student dorm rooms have network jacks which will connect them to the Pace Network.  Students need an ethernet card in order to connect.  For questions about ethernet cards, contact us via http://help.pace.edu or dial ext. ITS (33333). Students may also use the computers in the Computer Resource Centers or the Library.

Most faculty and staff have network jacks installed in their offices, classrooms, and many of the public areas.  To determine if an ethernet connection is active, contact your department Information Management Officer. If the jack is not active, have your IMO contact the Customer Support Center at ext. ITS (33333) or via http://help.pace.edu.

LISTSERVS

What is a Listserv Discussion Group?

A  listserv discussion group is a forum for groups to discuss topics, interests and share ideas via e-mail. Listserv software manages these lists by automatically distributing e-mail to each member.

Creating a Listserv Discussion Group

  • your name
  • department
  • campus location
  • telephone extension
  • subscription type (open, closed, by owner)
  • list owner's name and e-mail address (must be a Pace e-mail address)
  • list name which must end in -L (e.g., STAFF-L)

Obtaining Local Discussion Group Listings

To obtain a local discussion group listing:

  • Go to http://list.pace.edu
  • Select ‘Online Mailing List Archives’
  • Make your appropriate selection
Subscribing to a Discussion Group List

The majority of listserv discussion group lists are private or closed, as opposed to public or open lists where anyone can subscribe, so the list owner controls subscriptions to the lists. To subscribe to a list:

  • address e-mail to listserv@list.pace.edu and include the command: Subscribe listname Firstname Lastname, where listname is the name of the discussion list and Firstname and Lastname are your full name
  • open lists respond indicating you have been subscribed to the discussion list
  • closed lists notify you that your subscription is denied

As part of an initiative to reduce paper consumption, it is recommended you utilize discussion lists for your group correspondence.
