List Library - Overview

This document summarizes the List Library.

The List Library is a collection of email lists, available in MyUW, for use by university leadership and central offices to send messages to UW-Madison employees, at no cost, that are directly related to work or employment matters. Examples of official messages are new policies, benefits updates, or other news that should be delivered as part of the employer-employee relationship. Examples of groups in the List Library include campus leadership, all employees of schools, colleges and major units, and shared governance groups.

Employees cannot opt-out of these email lists. University Communications is available for consultation and review of messages, as well as answering questions about the Email List Library.

The List Library interface is available to approved senders at

Please contact your unit's communications director or Dean/Director's Office if you wish to send an email using an official message email list in the Email List Library.

This tool is an outcome of the Internal Communications APR Project.
