How to Subscribe to the LARED-L Listproc List.

     Electronic Networks are powerful e-mail forums you can use to communicate and interface with other people throughout the world regarding a wide range of socio-economic, ethnic, political or scholarly issues.

The LARED-L Electronic Discusssion Group is an absolutely free and open electronic forum for the Hispanic communities in and around the Sierra Nevada (Great Intermountain Southwest Region) ie., Denver, Alburquerque, Las Vegas, Reno, the Las Cruces/El Paso Metro area, Phoenix, and Tucson, Arizona. However the LARED-L is open for anybody interested in Hispanic issues regardless of geographic region.

The following instructions will show you how to subscribe to the LARED-L Electronic Discusssion group.

     In order to participate in Electronic Listserv Groups, you must already know how to use E-mail correctly and have an Internet account. E-mail accounts can be opened for free if you are a registered student, staff, or faculty at any college or university. You can also obtain a Free (Web-Based) E-mail Account which you can use to subscribe to LARED-L Listserv by filling out a simple form at http://www.hotmail.com.

     Otherwise you can open a commercial Internet account for about ten dollars, more or less, a month. I will recommend that you avoid the national ISPs (Internet Service Providers) such as AOL(America on Line), or Compuserve, because their service fees tend to be relatively high. By shopping around, you can a find local provider whose fees will be a fraction of what the National ISP companies will charge, and for the same Internet services.

     For those persons who are not familiar with Electronic Mail (E-mail), the Pine Information Center at the University of Washington provides extensive information about how to use E-mail.
