I can share documents through my "google" account. I have gmail but I am pretty sure that's not necessary and that you can sign up for it.

I don't have dialup but I do have a finite mailbox, and I really appreciate my groups like LM_NET (librarians) where attachments simply don't go through. I don't have to get off that list if I'm going away for a few days in the fear that my mailbox will be overloaded, as I do others.


I upload things to my website and post links and I've loaned space to others (such as from LM_NET) who didn't have that access.

Thanks Barry.
Is there a web site designed for this purpose, like a file sharing site?
Or would folks have to store thing on their own organizations' server?
Best,
Mariann

How about posting documents on a website as a pdf file and just sending
an announcement with the URL to the list?

Dear Tech list colleagues,

At a recent meeting at NIFL about the discussions list we talked about
what alternatives there may be to having messages come through the list
with attachments.

Having attachments on messages is a challenge for list subscribers with
dial-up service.

I thought some of you may have valuable input. What alternatives can you
think for making documents accessible to list members but not having
them come through the list with attachments?



Regards,

Mariann
