Bryn Mawr College uses a piece of software called Mailman for our list-serves. We have a mix of announcement and discussion lists, some of which are moderated, and others of which are unmoderated or “open”. All configuration changes to Mailman lists can be made via the Web interface by the list owners themselves. You can subscribe to or manage mailing lists at http://mailman.brynmawr.edu.
