In no event will AAMG be responsible to the users for any indirect, consequential, special or punitive damages or losses users may incur in connection with the AAMG listserv or any of the data or other materials transmitted through or residing on the listserv.

THIS IS A MODERATED LIST. AAMG may, but does not assume the obligation to, monitor discussions taking place through its listserv.

*General listserv information*
AAMG@groups.io serves the academic museum/gallery community and was initially developed by Dr. Stefan Sommer on the Yahoo! Groups platform (2008 – 2017) for the Association of Academic Museums & Galleries. The listserv was migrated by the AAMG board to Groups.io in August 2017. Paid members of AAMG receive an invitation to join the list upon either joining or renewing membership. Non-members of AAMG are approved for membership on a case by case basis. Membership in AAMG is strongly encouraged as a condition of membership on the list. Please visit aamg-us.org for more information.

You can manage your subscription on the AAMG@groups.io website listed above. Visit the website, sign in, and look for the “Subscription” button in the sidebar. You have the option to receive messages as they are posted, once a day in daily digest form, or you can view messages in the archives by selecting “Messages” in the sidebar.

All messages sent to the list are distributed to all subscribers. The identifier “[AAMG]” appears in the subject line, but please include a topic clearly identifying your email’s content in the subject line as well. This helps make it easier for all those subscribed to the list to search for topics in the message archives.

*Netiquette for Listserv Users*
1. If your message is intended for an individual, please do not send it to the entire group.

2. Only send messages of general interest to the group. To reply directly to the person who posts a message, manually type their address in the “to” line of your message, otherwise the message will go to all subscribers. If your message is more appropriate for the individual recipient than for the whole group, you are strongly encouraged not to forward it to AAMG@groups.io.
3. Individual users may not use the list for commercial solicitations. Current AAMG Corporate Members may post a maximum of four (4) interest-related messages per month to the listserv. Corporate Members who exceed this maximum will have their messages rejected by the listserv moderator until the calendar month resets.

4. LIST ARCHIVES: You can view archives, shared files, or the list calendar at the AAMG@groups.io main web page at https://groups.io/g/AAMG.

5. Use the clickable links on the left side of the page. Here you can upload and download files, web links, and images for other members to see. Uploaded files, links, and images are only available to list subscribers.
