Benefits:
LISTSERV has automated many of the otherwise time-consuming manual list administration tasks and has proved to be a fast and easy way to communicate. The University's list administrators greatly appreciate the user-friendly Web interface.

"LISTSERV's user-friendly Web interface has enabled professors and other list owners, mostly non-technical staff, to manage day-to-day list administration."
