How can you tell? All the e-mail lists that you still have to be subscribed to because they might be used to disseminate information that is important are being inundated with “I have to post to an e-mail list for class” posts.
Note to library school professors: e-mail lists are dead, they just haven’t realized it yet. Instead, how about having your students read and comment on blog posts? Why not ask them to join a library social network like the Library 2.0 Ning? Why not ask them to contribute to the community through the Library Success Wiki? Or even, why not have them start a new library blog on which they will post reflections about other blog posts or articles they read with additional commentary from their fellow students?
To be blunt, why not move into the real world of modern communication?
