SUBJECT: Memorial University's Office of Research launches online Research Directory
DATE: May 1, 2003

Note to editors:

The Office of Research has 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 will be continuously updated and added to as information is received from faculty members.

The directory can be viewed at Each entry typically provides 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. If applicable, specialized research equipment and facilities may also be listed.

The information presented in the directory, although brief in terms of an individual record, is of considerable interest to students, media, the general public, other researchers, government officials and agencies, and business.
