We welcome Pitzer College, the fifth school from the Claremont Consortium to choose Acalog to manage and publish the institution's e-catalog, to the Digital Architecture Community. The Claremont Consortium is a distinguished cluster of private colleges in California that include five undergraduate liberal arts colleges and two graduate institutions. Like at peer institutions, administrators chose Acalog for the centralized editing and approval environment for curriculum changes, and to improve student access to curriculum information through a dynamic online and mobile e-catalog.
Decision makers at Delaware Valley College chose Acalog to meet campus-wide innovation and environmental initiatives. Their new e-catalog will be seamlessly integrated with the school website, and will enhance the student experience with personalization features, social media integration, search and browse capability, and even the ability to support rich media integration.
The desire to streamline the catalog update process and eliminate the need to chase edits through a series of websites for their existing HTML catalog lead administrators at Massachusetts College of Art and Design to chose Acalog. The electronic distributed model of editing and workflow with centralized management of the process and electronic storage of tracked changes and approvals provides the efficiency they were seeking. They also look forward to providing their students with an interactive catalog via the web and mobile devices.
Fort Lewis College has been using the Acalog catalog publishing solution since 2008, and has now chosen Curriculog to manage the college's curriculum approval process. The school had been using a legacy system that mimicked the paper forms used in the past. As happens with many homegrown solutions, the main point of contact for the program moves on, retires, etc., leaving it virtually unsupported. Curriculog will provide the college with a highly configurable, automated curriculum approval-tracking platform, with the flexibility to respond to evolving institutional and accreditation requirements.
A positive experience using Acalog at another institution is one reason the registrar at Samford University wanted to bring the catalog publishing solution to his school. Catalog editors at the university look forward to streamlining the catalog revision process and avoiding dual entry.

Chowan University selected Acalog to replace the current PDF version of the academic catalog and provide a more interactive experience for students with the ability to search, save, and share course and program information.

Acalog was the chosen solution for Springfield Technical Community College to eliminate the challenge of maintaining and updating catalog information in multiple locations, which is prone to errors and inconsistencies. Acalog's ability to deliver data via Web Services to the school's website, and integration with the Student Information System via Digital Architecture's Integration Manager and/or Remote Services Module, eliminates dual entry and ensures consistent and up-to-date course information.
Campus stakeholders at Berry College were looking for a solution that would easily interface with their Jenzabar SIS. Their choice of Acalog was confirmed after speaking with current customers updating Jenzabar from Acalog. Academic Services Department catalog editors say they are thrilled with the efficiency they'll gain by replacing the manual process of creating and maintaining individual Planning Guides with the dynamically generated Degree Planners available through the Acalog e-catalog Gateway.
As a long time supporter and fan of Acalog, the Associate Academic VP at Wayland Baptist University is thrilled to provide the campus with a dynamic, intuitive online catalog.

Staff members at Reading Area Community College wanted to reduce their reliance on print, and eliminate the painful paper-based catalog-change process.
