PALNI communicates in many different ways, from email to forums, and online virtual meetings. The boxes below outline key communication channels you'll want to configure to begin interfacing with the consortium staff and colleagues. In addition PALNI hosts a communication guide described here, which you will also want to review as part of completing the onboarding checklist.
The PALNI Communication Guide offers complete details on contacting PALNI staff, communicating with colleagues, OCLC support, listservs, and virtual meetings. The manual also contains information on PALNI branding guidelines for creating materials while working within a PALNI group, team, expert, or coordinator role. Access the Communication Manual.
The PALNI Community (intranet) serves as a central location for virtual PALNI discussion. All PALNI groups work together in this system to make it easier for those people who serve in multiple roles on their campus.

Because you are on a non-google campus, you will need to take one extra step before signing up for the new PALNI Community. It will only take 2-3 minutes of your time and you will never have to do it again (or even remember you did it!)
In order to ensure that you are getting the community digest notifications in your work email and enable single-sign on for all community areas, you will need to create a Google account that is run by your non-gmail work email.
