TAA Online Community Rules


  1. All discussions and shared links must clearly relate to the textbook, academic, or scholarly journal field.
  2. Be professional, polite, and respectful of other members and their questions/responses.
  3. Members can post relevant webinars, upcoming events, and workshops so long as it is not spam. Spam includes:
  • Posting the same webinar, event, or workshop repeatedly.
  • Posting comments in one’s own discussion for the sole purpose of making it go to the top of the discussion board.
  • Sending multiple unsolicited messages to group members. Validated complaints will result in removal or blocking of said spammer.

Postings that do not follow these rules may be removed without notifying the member responsible for the post. Failure to follow these rules of use may lead to member removal and/or blocking.

Please be respectful of these rules, but do not be afraid to voice your own opinion or share something that others might be interested in. We are all here to learn, grow, and network.
