Streamlining Maintenance and Access to a University's Academic Catalog
Benjamin, Blair
Association of Small Computer Users in Education (ASCUE), 38th, Myrtle Beach, SC, June 12-16, 2005
Developing and maintaining an online version of a University's Academic Catalog has increasingly become a priority for enrollment management and IT staff. Many schools are now using the online version of their catalog as their primary working copy and are generating their print version periodically as needed. Managing and accessing this content can be cumbersome without a viable content management solution. Using Digital Architecture's Acalog[TM] ACMS (Academic Catalog Management System) solution, the process is streamlined for both the end user and the catalog administrators. Built from the ground up by academic professionals exclusively to meet catalog management needs, this product enables various people in the catalog editing and maintenance process to work together to accomplish their goals without a prerequisite of technical expertise. Additionally, prospective students and other web visitors have speedy and intuitive access to catalog data from both current and previous years. Since implementing Acalog[TM] ACMS at Philadelphia Biblical University, various individuals have been able to directly participate in the editing process to develop a cohesive, intuitive online catalog presence in an affordable manner.
