About the AACA Listserve

In March of 1995, the Association opened a listserve address (AACA List) that distributes messages to over 1000 individuals, including non-members, around the globe. Since its inception, over 7500 messages on a wide variety of topics have gone out to subscribers (average less than 1 per day). Topics of these messages include: information about the Association's activities, upcoming anatomical conferences, the Visible Human Project, embryology image databases, anomalies, nomenclature, the value of dissection, cadaver supplies and availability, donor/willed body programs, embalming procedures, lab safety and OSHA standards as it relates to phenol and formaldehyde levels, the practices of body parts brokers across the county, comments on computer programs, and a wide variety of curriculum and teaching issues.

In February of 2016, the List’s server at Einstein (AECOM) ended and the association began the migration to the new Listserver platform on Google.  We expect that the new listserve will be up and running by March of 2016.

All emails from this new Google Groups hosted listserv will come with the following subject prefix: [AACA-Listserv]

Members can choose different email options:

  1. Abridged Email: one summary email of new activity per day
  2. Digest Email: up to 25 full new messages in a single email
  3. All Email: send each message as it arrives

You can log in to the web archive of the group HERE.  You will be asked to provide a google account login and password, which allows google to verify your identity.  Anyone who uses gmail, has an institution using google for email, or uses google docs already has such an account.  AACA does not provide tech support for google, so please search within the google system if you have problems getting in.  With the web interface you can

  •          Post to the group
  •          Search past posts
  •          Change your email preferences

For any questions or if you would like to be added to the listserv, please contact Caitlin Hyatt at [email protected]
