New Morocco Forum

There is a new Yahoo Groups list devoted to the exchange of information between foreigners living and working in Morocco.

To join, visit the Morocco Scholars website:

and then follow the instructions for sending a short note to the list's moderator.

This list is intended to facilitate the answering and asking of questions and the posting of useful information and tips regarding living, working, and conducting research in Morocco. Examples of appropriate uses of the list include finding and passing on apartments and furniture, asking how to gain research clearance at a particular library, asking where to find a good tailor, asking how to get a carte de sejour or a phone line, or posting the information you've collected regarding shipping possessions back to your home country.

Advertisements and commercial notices are better placed in the classified ads provided by ArtiZany. The Morocco Scholars list is also not designed to focus on tourism-related questions, although some may be appropriate. For general news about Morocco - go to The View From Fez.
