Begun by Tyler's own Christina Parkin, MFA 1995, ACMET-L serves as an open forum for those concerned about the state of "academic metalsmithing." Topics range from craft/art theory to course syllabi. Participants are independent smiths, professionals, college and university faculty and their students. Some programs take part in the discussion as an extension of their seminar courses.

A very active forum for smiths (predominantly blacksmiths, but like most mailing lists, they welcome any interested party to join in). As they say themselves:

"The ArtMetal Project is a not-for-profit volunteer venture of a group of metalsmiths and organizations which aims to disseminate information about various aspects of artistic metalworking and to provide a forum for artists and art lovers to experience this outstanding medium."

The listserver may run a confirmation routine that requires you to respond within a day of its response to your original subscription request. So be prepared to check your mail everyday after you subscribe until you successfully confirm.

Old articles can also be accessed via World Wide Web. This is by far the easiest and most flexible way to browse through the old articles. The archive is updated daily with fresh articles from the list.

Although there are a number of rec.crafts.x newsgroups, rec.crafts.metalworking stands out as an especially good one. Topics cover a very broad spectrum of metalworking, but there seems to be a high percentage of machinists logged on. The FAQ for this group is a resource worth investigating.
