Lyris List Manager Migration

Last updated: 6-2-2021

Overview

Due to license agreement and pricing changes that were put in place by the parent company that owns Lyris, our current distribution list system, the University will be discontinuing the use of Lyris June 21, 2021. As a result of this change, the University will be moving to a new mailing tool called L-Soft LISTSERV over the next month. LISTSERV is a highly recognized solution in the Higher Ed space, and offers all of the features of Lyris and much more, including the ability to use your MultiPass credentials to log in!

How will this change affect me?

To facilitate a smooth transition to LISTSERV, CTS will be moving all current Lyris mailing lists to LISTSERV so no action on your part if needed at this time.

Prior to the migration, we encourage all list owners to sign up for the training on either of the following dates:

  • June 16 at 1:00 p.m.
  • June 17 at 10:00 a.m.

Please register for LISTSERV training below!

Be on the lookout for an email the week of June 7 with a link to our LISTSERV site with resources and training videos.
