What happened to MCN-L?

The MCN-L was a classic email listserv discussion forum on Linode that was retired in June of 2021 when we introduced the MCN Forum. It was created for professionals in the cultural sector, and at its peak with 2,500+ subscribers, the MCN-L Listserv has been the most valuable resource for professionals in the musetech community, and now lives on as the MCN Forum. The MCN-L archive will be imported into and contains years of valuable tech/digital content relevant to professionals in galleries, libraries, archives, museums and other cultural institutions.
