All Columbia staff received an email yesterday alerting them to changes in the online directory; evidently, changes are not limited to the new antifreeze-blue “search” button. The email, sent out by Lisa Hogarty, Executive Vice President of Student and Administrative Services, indicates that the online directory will now have “an improved search engine,” “a comprehensive browse function,” and “more continual updates to directory data.”
Additionally, there will no longer be a printed Faculty and Staff Directory, though if you have a hankering to kill a few trees, you can place an order for a directory through Print Services. (Bwog wasn’t aware that such a document existed in the first place).
If you’ll excuse us, we’re off to pull an Ashley Cross and remove our personal information from the Columbia website – though it should be said that our mailing addresses, full names, and dorm numbers really do look great in the new interface.
