New LLOPS Listserv

Dear LLOPS Members,

For the past several years, the American Association of Law Libraries has been hosting the LLOPS listserv (, but due to administrative changes and a significant price increase, we will be transitioning to a more cost-effective platform.

The Executive Board and current Webmaster, Kristin Kimura, evaluated several different options and we decided to move forward with a listserv platform called Gaggle Mail. This platform is cost-effective, it has sound privacy & data security policies, and it is easy to use.

We will transition to Gaggle Mail on Tuesday, October 20th, 2020 and the old listserv will retire on Friday, October 30th, 2020. Members will receive a welcome email from Gaggle Mail, which will include our new listserv email address ( and information about the LLOPS mailing list. If you do not receive a welcome email or if you have any questions, please contact Kristin Kimura for assistance.  

Thank you,

Carly Eyler

LLOPS President, 2020-21
