research Listserv Archives

To view FYE-List archives by topic, including summaries of discussion threads, click here. To conduct a keyword search, follow the instructions below. To run a search on the web click here your list: FYE, FYA, GRAD, SOPH, SYE, TYE

To learn how to SEARCH and how to GETPOST over e-mail do the following. SEARCH finds the e-mail(s); GETPOST sends you copies of the full text of the e-mail(s).

The examples below are for our FYE listserv. For the other, replace the letters "FYE" with the letters for the listserv for which you want to research.

GENERAL SEARCH
You can search the list's archives with the SEARCH command.

The "command" format is:

search <word(s) you want to search for> in <listname>

As an example, if you wanted to look at all the e-mails where "learning communities" were discussed among the FYE-list participants you would do the following:

Send to:
listserv@LISTSERV.SC.EDU

Message:
search learning communities in fye-list

Next step, see "GETPOST" below.

SEARCH BY DATE
If you wish to limit your search to a certain time period you would add "FROM/TO" language.

The "command" format is:
search <word(s) you want to search for> in <listname> FROM <date> TO <date>

Dates are in international format: yy/mm/dd

As an example, if you wanted to look at all the e-mails where "learning communities" were discussed among the FYE-list participants from April 19, 2001 to October 5, 2002, you would do the following:

Send to:
listserv@LISTSERV.SC.EDU

Message:
search learning communities in fye-list from 01/04/19 to 02/10/05

Next step, see "GETPOST" below.

GETPOST
After you have sent in your command to search the list, you will receive an e-mail with a list of 'hits' for your search. Here is an example of one hit.

Item # Date Time Recs Subject
003656 01/07/12 08:34 66 Learning Communities Seminar


The first number, the item number (003656) is the number you will use when you ask the listserv to send to you the full text of the email. Drop the leading zeros (ex. 3656).

At the bottom of the list of these hits will be the exact sentence you use to get copies of these e-mails.

To order a copy of this posting, send the following command:

GETPOST FYE-LIST 3656

You can copy, cut, and paste this command into a new e-mail or retype it into a new e-mail.

Send to:
listserv@LISTSERV.SC.EDU

Message:
GETPOST FYE-LIST 3656

If you had multiple postings you wanted to get, list all the item numbers, with a space in between each.

Message:
GETPOST FYE-LIST 3656 3753 3754 3801 3815 3841 3917 3924 3957 3970 13978 3984 4045 4057 4067 4085 4145 4209 4219 4225 4319 4321 4337 4363 4477 4597
