Web Sites Do Spring Cleaning
Staff Assembly <www.staffassembly.ucsb.edu
> and the Chancellor’s Staff Advisory Council <http://csac.ucsb.edu/index.cfml
> are among those organizations and departments that have recently conducted major overhauls of their Web sites. Linked to the CSAC site are other sites useful to employees, from Human Resources to the Professional Women’s Association and the local weather. UCSB Libraries <www.library.ucsb.edu
> is another wide-ranging resource with a re-design that not only indexes library services but links to UCSB Graduate Division, the Alumni Association, and even UC’s At Your Service site, which has also been made more navigable.
