New Administration Page
By David McKelvey
You may have noticed there’s a new link in the institutional (meta) navigation at the top of the page. This is a new feature of the website that we’ve been working on for a little while and is our first step into building organizational data into our sites.
Clicking Administration takes you to a web page that is written for a diverse outside audience, since we expect that this link will be used by people that haven’t yet found what they are looking for elsewhere and prefer not to use the search.
The new Administration contains a little gem of a tool for Lewis & Clark community members too — take a look at the Office and Department search. It gives you full access, as quickly searchable listings, to all organizational units of Lewis & Clark that were contained in the last printed phone directory. You’ll be able to see websites, emails, phone, fax, MSC and buildings where we have them, for all organizations.
Since the data is from the last known authority — the printed phone directory — some of it may be out of date, or as of this writing, new offices like the Ombuds office aren’t yet there. If you find a discrepancy, just use the feedback form linked from the directory page to tell us about a change, or give us a good keyword to add to an entry. (We’ll be making this available for you to edit yourself soon.)
Give it a try and let us know what you think. And with that, I’m off to go add Ombuds to the list.
