With a growing system of campuses in Dallas, Ft. Worth, and Denton, administrators at the University of North Texas (UNT) perceived a need to eliminate the overhead costs of publishing printed catalogs. They decided to completely do away with print for the Dallas and Denton campuses, and needed an effective means of delivering catalog information to students.
After an involved vendor review process, Alaska Pacific University has selected Acalog™ as the best solution to help transition from print to an interactive e-catalog as their primary academic catalog publication. Of particular concern during the evaluation process was identifying a solution that would meet the requirements of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA), which mandates specific disclosure and reporting requirements, including the “three-click rule” for college and university websites.
Hinds Community College is one of an increasing number of schools committed to scaling back printed publications to support both economic and environmental goals, and to improve student services. This move calls for re-thinking the catalog revision process to move from a print-centric to web-centric authoring environment. Acalog™ was chosen both for its focus on a web-centric approach, as well as its ability to auto-generate a highly interactive e-catalog, including social media integration and a dynamic smart-phone specific interface.
