Year in Review | April

Computing and Communications released Memorial's Web portal in April. The strong and powerful piece of software, two years in the making, drastically alters the way information is sent and received at Memorial. The new portal technology adds customization to Memorial's current Web presence. Customization allows each user to define a unique and personal view of university Web services.

The Office of Research launched an online and electronically searchable Research Directory. Currently containing records on about 400 faculty researchers at the St. John's campus, the Marine Institute and the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College campus, the directory is continuously updated and added to as information is received from faculty members. The directory, on the Web at www.mun.ca/research/directory/, provides each researcher's name, rank, department or other academic unit, a list of keywords, and a brief summary (in point form) of current, past, and potential research interests.

Dr. Don Deibel will participate in an international scientific mission in the Canadian high Arctic in the fall of 2003. Dr. Deibel, research professor at the Ocean Sciences Centre of Memorial University, is a biological oceanographer who has been working in the arctic for the past 15 years. He is a co-principal investigator on the CFI award to Laval University to refit the Coast Guard icebreaker, the Sir John Franklin, for arctic marine research.
