Special Interest Groups

  • Web Author's Group (WAG) — Official Use
    This listserv is intended for the distribution of official announcements from HHS, NIH OD, and ICs. This is not intended as a discussion listserv, but a mechanism by which official messages can be shared quickly with web leadership. Examples of such messages include important notices, data calls, and responses to requests from HHS or other agencies. Membership will be curated, with members able to send announcements by emailing [Scott Prince, Marin Allen, Julie Morton] with the information they would like shared. Material distributed to this list should be properly vetted within each IC and should not be shared outside NIH. (NIH-only access)
  • Web Author's Group (WAG) Nuts and Bolts
    The former WAG Distribution list is now the WAG Nuts and Bolts Listserv, and is intended for informal discussions. An open listserv, all members will be allowed to solicit feedback or input, ask questions, or provide advice on appropriate WAG- related content. Members are encouraged to share best practices and lessons learned while discussing any issues or challenges that may be of value. Material distributed to this list should not be shared outside NIH. NIH Staff who are involved in web-related issues may request membership by contacting Scott Prince. (NIH-only access)
