Throughout the next few weeks, we will be sharing with you our 'Making the Most of LINGUIST' letter series. This series of messages will identify the main types of resources on LINGUIST, and will explain how they can best be utilized to meet your needs.
The series will mirror the typical development of a professional linguist, beginning with resources for students, then for conducting research, followed by help with professional development, institutions, conference organizers, and employers, then finishing up with special interests.
For those of you who are new to the mesmerizing field of linguistics--or have a passing interest in language--LINGUIST has an area specifically for you:
Looking for more research-oriented resources? Stay tuned for the next letter! Remember, these services are available to the linguistic community by your donations.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
