This month we will start out our monthly column of internet mailing lists with the state of Maryland, home of the Jernigan Institute and the National Center for the Blind. And for good measure, we will throw in the state of Delaware, since it is small.
The primary list for the state of Maryland is NFBMD. You can subscribe to the list by going to http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/nfbmd_nfbnet.org or you can also subscribe by sending email to email@example.com and put the word subscribe on the subject line by itself. The list contains both discussion and announcements.
Most of the chapters in Maryland also have their own lists. Below are the list names and a brief description of each. To subscribe substitute the list name in the command above for the NFBMD phrase.
Baltimore, Maryland, chapter list
At-Large Chapter of the NFB of Maryland
Sligo Creek Chapter
National Harbor Chapter list
Towson/Lutherville/Cockeysville Maryland Chapter list
Two divisions in Maryland also have their own lists, Parents of Blind Children and Students. Their list names are MDPOBC and MDABS respectively and can be used in the web or email commands mentioned previously. The NFBNET server also hosts the NFB of Maryland website, http://www.nfbmd.org.
Finally, as a bonus, since it is small and close to Maryland, we will mention Delaware. Its list name is NFB-of-Delaware and you can subscribe either by going to http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/nfb-of-delaware_nfbnet.org or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put subscribe on the subject line by itself.Next month we will tell you about technology-related lists. As always, you can find all NFBNET.ORG-related lists at http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/.
