An email group allows you to send email to multiple recipients with a single email address.  For example, an email sent to group@selco.info would go to all the members of the group. SELCO maintains numerous email groups to make it easier for SELCO and library staff to communicate. Here are some of the more commonly used email groups:

_DIR Groups

Each Online Library has a group for the library Director.  This helps other libraries in the SELCO region who wish to contact a specific library Director without knowing who that person is.  Online Libraries may include other staff in the group to facilitate communication but that decision is made by each library.  The address of these groups is created by adding _DIR to the Delivery Code of the library.  For example, AU_DIR@selco.info includes the Director of Austin Public Library along with any other staff designated by the library (if any).

_AUTO Groups

Each Online Library has a group for the library Automation Contact(s).  This helps other libraries in the SELCO region who wish to contact a specific library’s Automation Contact without knowing who that is.  Online Libraries may have multiple Automation Contacts but that decision is made by each library.  The address of these groups is created by adding _AUTO to the Delivery Code of the library.  For example, AU_AUTO@selco.info includes the Automation Contact(s) of Austin Public Library.

_ILL Groups

Each Online Library has a group for the library Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Contact(s).  This helps other libraries in the SELCO region who wish to contact a specific library’s ILL Contact without knowing who that is.  Online Libraries may have multiple ILL Contacts but that decision is made by each library.  The address of these groups is created by adding _ILL to the Delivery Code of the library.  For example, AU_ILL@selco.info includes the ILL Contact(s) of Austin Public Library.
