Web is the way to keep up with the news


Campusweb is now a primary means of communication across the University, with important information on everything from teaching resources to travel grants.

The news service, provided by the press office, was launched in November 2002, and the site is widely used by staff and students. A request for study volunteers prompted over 100 responses within a day of being posted. News is constantly revised, with information about new policies and procedures, research findings, funding, appointments, promotions, seminars and small ads – to name but a few.

With so much going on around campus, and only space for a few news headlines in each section, some items don’t stay on the home page for long. By clicking on the section headings, you can see previous news items.

Campusweb is run by the Library. University Librarian Jan Wilkinson said: “Everyone should check Campusweb on a daily basis – whenever they log onto their computers. So far, the site has been a great success and we plan to build on that, with further development in the pipeline.”

Plans are already under way to align the new design to the previous site navigation, ensuring access to information is straightforward and logical. For more information, or with suggestions for improvements or general comments, contact Tracey Stanley on
