    file. The Adobe Acrobat is used to allow you to convert papers, documents
    and images to PDF format and save data in PDF form.


Each Department could supply links for resources that would be helpful
for the students/Faculty/staff. This is depend on each department’s
need and purpose. For example: (Campus Map, Shuttle Service, etc.). This
can be accomplished by:

  1. Surveying selected
    users to see what they would find helpful additions to your site; 
  2. Surveying department
    staff to see what they think would be helpful.  

It is also important
to regularly (once per month at least) check the viability and usefulness
of the links that you create. Dead links or links that have changed since
they were first established may not be of use and only clutter your site.
