Undergraduate catalog now online
Sept. 2, 2004
KALAMAZOO--The 2003-05 edition of the Western Michigan University Undergraduate Catalog is now available for computer download as a fully searchable and printable PDF (Portable Document Format) file. The catalog can be found at <catalogs.ur.wmich.edu>. In the coming weeks, the 2002-04 Graduate Catalog will be available through the same Web page.
According to David H. Smith, WMU director of graphics and design, the catalogs will not be continuously updated, but will be updated each time a print edition is completed.
"The catalog has a table of contents much like the one found in the print version," Smith says. "Users will be able to locate an item on the contents page and click on it to go to the appropriate page in the PDF. They also can print as much or as little of the PDF as they like."
Smith says that, while computer users with high-speed Internet connections will be able to download the catalog in less than a minute, those relying on dial-up modem access could take as long as six minutes to download the material.
