WEBMASTERS COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES
Tuesday, June 19, 2001
Adams Room, Physiology Building
Ms. Pridgen called the meeting to order at 9:05 a.m.
Members Present: J. Chandler, J. Gentile, T. Harmon, S. Hilligoss, J. Lenz, C. Moth, M. Pridgen, J. Riegel, L. Tarnoff, and S. Varner
Pages not "Bobby Certified" as of 5/7/01 include: Anatomy and Neurobiology, Cancer Cure, Clinical Sciences, Diagnostic Lab, Environmental Health, Network Services, Pathology and the VTH. Environmental Health has gone through Bobby successfully; just have not put the logo on the page.
Ms. Lenz made a presentation of the work she has been doing on the redesign of the College webpage. The new site has borrowed a number of ideas from the University of Utah's website. Committee members liked the look of the site. It was agreed that the Research and Service Centers link needs to be shortened. Ms. Moth offered to look at the list and offer alternatives at the next meeting.
It was suggested that the one fixed photograph on the main page be removed and the others have a border around them. Ms. Lenz plans to put the College address in the white space next to the logo.
Committee members discussed the need for a College logo that would represent the whole College and not just veterinary medicine. At this time, none exists.
Ms. Lenz will present a potential format for the second-level pages at the next meeting. She encouraged committee members to keep providing ideas.
Photograph for Main Page
Committee members agreed with Ms. Lenz that the photograph of the child and the cat would be a good replacement for the eagle.
Teaching with Technology Conference
Committee members were encouraged to explore the possibility of attending the Six Annual CU Teaching with Technology Conference August 5-7, 2001, at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The conference is free. The website is: http://www.cu.edu/VPAAR/6.technology/twt/twt2001/
The meeting was adjourned at 9:45 a.m. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 10, 2001, 9:00 a.m. in the Adams Room, Physiology Building.
