Volume 42 Number 4
The University introduced a new face to the World Wide Web last Friday, replacing its existing Penn Home Page with a colorful new design that features Penn's traditional red and blue. The area now defined by the engraving of Benjamin Franklin, below, will change from time to time, to highlight other people and places of the University. Developed by a campus-wide design team with input from a 35-member Advisory Group, the new home page opens to a choice of five "views" into Penn's web-based information, each tailored to a different audience perspective. A tool bar at the bottom of the page provides buttons linking to an overview of Penn and to "what's new" on the Penn Web--with other links to a new University events calendar; a powerful search tool; and a "help" button with information about the new Penn Web.
For more on these and other new features, see the back page.
