Systemwide Groups

RCLS sets up and maintains "email lists" in Microsoft 365 referred to as "distribution group or groups" for specific groups of users with a common purpose. For example, the group "allrcls" is intended to provide all RCLS email users the ability to exchange, share and request information related to library programs and services from the staff at other libraries.
