*Title: Listserv Specialist

Background: Archaeological Legacy Institute is a tax-exempt nonprofit
organization based in Eugene, Oregon. Our streaming-media Web site and
chief project, The Archaeology Channel (; TAC),
launched 12 years ago, has become one of the world?s most popular Web sites
relating to archaeology  and the human cultural heritage, with annual
traffic in the millions of page views. We now are rebuilding TAC as an even
more attractive, content-filled, dynamic, and interactive platform for our
programming, services and information. A closely-related spinoff of TAC is
The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival, produced
each spring at the Shedd Institute, in downtown Eugene, Oregon. In 2010,
ALI launched its first cable TV programming distributed over a growing
nationwide network of stations. Our most popular program is the Audio News
from Archaeologica, our weekly radio-style show summarizing the top
archaeology and cultural heritage research stories from around the world
and distributed on TAC and by podcast to a loyal audience in the hundreds
of thousands. ALI has numerous opportunities for unlimited growth as an
Internet media and public outreach organization and needs to expand its
volunteer work force in order to take advantage of these opportunities.
Some of our volunteers may become our employees, depending upon their
productivity and effectiveness.

Hourly Commitment: Approximately 2-5 hours per week.

Job Purpose: To improve our ability to communicate with target audiences.
We frequently share information and make announcements via listservs, so we

information via multiple listservs to selected groups of recipients.

Here is your chance to get involved with the creative heart of a dynamic
and growing enterprise. Your help here will have a direct impact on ALI's
productivity and ability to pursue its public mission. The experience you
gain will be directly transferable to other positions you may seek in the

Key Responsibilities: The Listserv Specialist will team with our existing
listserv crew to expand our index of listserve Web sites on archaeology,
education, and related subjects; serve as conduit for ALI information to

skills as well as familiarity and experience with the World Wide Web. Ideal
attributes include familiarity with listservs and a background in
archaeology and anthropology. We expect some measure of on-the-job learning
