Brock News moves online
Published on January 05 2010
Brock University’s print-edition faculty and staff newsletter is now an interactive website with up-to-date campus news at www.brocku.ca/brocknews.
The Brock News, whose print edition has traditionally been published every two weeks, is paper free and more current in its new online format, said Kevin Cavanagh, associate director of Communications and Public Affairs.
The print run of Brock News was nearly 4,000 copies per month.
“(Going online) just make sense, from environmental and service aspects,” said Cavanagh. “The need to relate significant information in a timely manner dictates that we communicate it more often than twice a month. Going online lets Brock News be more responsive to events, and to the wishes of faculty and staff who have asked for a digital version.”
The new site, developed in consultation with faculty and staff, allows readers to comment on stories and subscribe to daily email updates and syndicated news feeds.
Besides its interactive components, the online Brock News continues to carry such popular content as faculty and staff listings and publications; updates on Brock people who have been covered in the news media; “Three Questions” profiles; and classified ads.
The Jan. 13 issue of Brock News will be the final print edition.
