Debut of the New University of Pennsylvania Website, Version 3.0
The 1999 edition of the University of Pennsylvania Web site is now ready for preview. Visitors to the new site will find that the organizational structure and navigational tools of the current Penn Web site, which have proved popular with users, have survived virtually intact in a clean and lively new design. In addition, the new home page features selected news items from Penn's public information offices and publications, as well as a rotating marquee of the day's events on campus.
The biggest change in "version 3.0" of the Penn Web is in the online campus calendar of events. The new calendar, which coordinates with scheduling software used by the Vice Provost for University Life and other offices, offers clearer and more detailed descriptions of campus events and a powerful interface that makes navigation, searching and customization easier.
The Penn Web Team encourages you to look over the new site and share your comments. In addition, we encourage offices and organizations across the campus to familiarize themselves with the calendar and send comments and inquiries to the calendar editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The preview site will become the official Penn Web site on September 27.
