Johns Hopkins Gazette: September 8, 1997

"Web Guide To
The Academic Year"

The Gazette's on-line
guide to university
Each year The Gazette runs pages of graphs and charts and policies and calendars and lists, all in an effort to help the newcomers to the university community and resituate the veterans.

This year, however, we've decided to direct your attention to the incredible resources of JHUniverse and Infonet. The university and medical campus Web sites offer far more information than these mere 12 pages could possibly hold. Thus, the first annual Gazette Web Guide to the Academic Year. We have omitted the http:// prefix to Web site addresses because Web browsers, like Netscape, typically include it automatically; however, if you cannot connect to a Web site, try entering the full address.

If you do not have access to the Internet, let us know, and we will get you a copy of the pages.
