AMS-L Update (Fall 2018)
AMS-L was scheduled to be discontinued on October 31, 2018, with users transitioning to an alternative provided at Humanities Commons. The decision to discontinue AMS-L was made in November 2017 by the Board of Directors, who sought to provide the Society's members with a more flexible and technologically up-to-date forum for discussion and intellectual exchange.
Because a number of people expressed distress at the loss of AMS-L, the Board of Directors revisited that decision at its meeting in early November 2018. The Board agreed that the best way forward is to leave in place a discussion list similar to AMS-L, one that uses the same distribution service (Listserv, kindly provided by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln). The new iteration is named "Musicology-L"; its management has devolved away from direct AMS supervision, thanks to the many volunteers who have stepped up.
