Services: Email Lists

What is this service?

This service provides electronic mailing lists (distribution lists) to Oregon state government employees.


Examples of email list use:

  • Professional information sharing
  • Electronic newsletters for coworkers or customers
  • Interagency communication
  • Public announcements


Guidelines for use of lists:

  • Email lists must be initiated by a current Oregon state government employee or by a former statewide elected official.
  • Email lists must serve a governmental (official work-related) function.
  • A list must not be used for internal office communication and must include at least 15 participants. Exceptions can be made.


There are two types of email lists:

  • Open, public email lists - to locate lists that may be of interest and accept your participation, contact Oregon State library reference support at: library.help@state.or.us or call 503-378-8800
  • Closed, private email lists - lists set up for specific groups
