Sign In (former IASST-L) (former is an email discussion list for IASSIST members. Everyone with a current membership and for whom we have an email address, and an indication that you wish to join the list, is registered on this distribution list.

This service was created to facilitate communication among IASSIST members between annual conferences. The format of this distribution list is similar to other professional newsletters. We want to share career opportunities, conference announcements, important dates, workshops and training programs, minutes from IASSIST meetings, reports from committees and action groups, news items about members, and information from other professional associations.

The list has also become an important source of support for members to query other data professionals about data sources and best practice in serving users.

We are currently in the process of tranferring our discussion list to a new host. Instructions will be updated shortly. In the meanwhile, please contact the List Moderator if you have any questions. Older instructions for using the list is at and information on accessing the archives is available at our membership site

As a non-profit organization, the resources of IASSIST, including its discussion list, are not to be used for commercial purposes including advertizing or other promotional efforts related to commercial products. IASSIST Policy does permit, however, the use of its discussion list for announcements of the availability of new datasets from members' institutions and conferences for other organizations. IASSIST Policy does not permit the use of this service by, or for, non-members.
