New site is central source for daily U.Va. news and features

Staff Report

The University produces scores of magazines and newsletters, and hundreds of press releases each year. Until recently, it would have been pretty difficult to know where to find them all.

However, late last month, the Office of University Relations debuted the “U.Va. Top News Daily” Web site (http://www.virginia.edu/topnews) to provide a central source for all of the news and features coming out of U.Va. Updated every day, Top News Daily features breaking University news, spotlights faculty and student research, and provides links to dozens of U.Va. publications, as well as to the latest alumni and sports news. In addition, there are links to the University’s calendar of events and a “Things to Do” page.

Each week, the site will highlight a “Featured Publication.” Libra, the U.Va. Library newsletter, and Arts & Sciences, a magazine produced for that school’s alumni, were featured in the first two weeks.

There is also a link to “Headline News,” a daily compilation of newspaper and other media reports from outside Grounds that may be of interest to the University community. Headline News can be viewed online (http://www.virginia.edu/topnews/releases/headlines.html), or readers may sign up to receive it weekday mornings via e-mail.

“The site is going through sort of a summer shakedown cruise,” said Dan Heuchert, electronic news editor. He urged those with questions or comments to either e-mail him (danh@virginia.edu) or Karen Asher, who maintains the site (karena@virginia.edu).
