About this capture
GUide
Georgetown University can easily and effectively describe its mission, academic departments and standards, organization, services, and special events via the Internet, particularly the World Wide Web, to its students, faculty, alumni, prospective students, researchers and others interested in Georgetown University. A campus-wide information system, called GUide (Georgetown University information delivered electronically), has been established to provide a mechanism to organize and distribute electronic information about Georgetown University on the Internet. To provide an appropriate mechanism to administer GUide, a committee providing representation for those concerned with disseminating electronic information about the University has received an official charge from the University.
The GUide Committee's recent redesign of the Georgetown Web structure is an excellent example of our collaborative work, and the Acknowledgements page for this project demonstrates the University-wide nature of our goals and accomplishments. If you are interested in learning more about the GUide Committee's current work and goals, see our Planning Document.
The GUide Committee has developed a number of resources that are relevant for all Web developers at Georgetown Unviersity. The Guidelines for Web Development outline a general set of rules that all GU Web developers should abide by. The Recommendations for World Wide Web Development expand on the Guidelines and give more specific, technical advice. The Georgetown Guide to the Web provides an introduction to the Web and a narrative explanation of the steps and tools of Web development.
Charge
The GUide Committee is asked to develop, administer, and maintain a campus-wide information system permitting the faculty, students, administrators, and staff of Georgetown University to make information about the University electronically available to the campuses and to a world-wide audience. To this end, the GUide Committee will:
monitor developments in technology and software appropriate for distributing Georgetown University information electronically and choose or develop technological tools, as appropriate
facilitate the steady growth and ongoing maintenance of the GUide structure of resources
publicize GUide to the Georgetown University community
coordinate training, as necessary, to facilitate GUide's growth and development
oversee the organization of GUide and the placement of materials within its structure
establish guidelines and policies governing GUide and facilitate their implementation
coordinate the ongoing review of GUide in conjunction with appropriate University offices
work closely with the Chief Information Officers to plan for future developments, and identify and remedy problems related to GUide
Organization
The GUide Committee includes broad representation from Georgetown University information providers, information consumers, and technology providers. The Committee meets periodically throughout the year to provide oversight of the GUide structure. A steering committee, constituted from GUide Committee members as outlined below, sets direction and priorities, expedites implementation, and provides leadership for the GUide Committee. Steering committee members are chosen by the GUide Committee and endorsed by the CIOs. Subcommittees on specific topics will be created, as needed.
Steering Committee Members:
1 representative from the ACS, reporting to the Main Campus CIO (Deborah Everhart, Chair of the Steering Committee)
1 representative from IS, reporting to the University CIO (Ron Rosier)
1 representative from the Medical Center, reporting to the University CIO (Paul Hambright)
1 representative from the Law Center, reporting to the CIO for the Law Center (Pete Meenehan)
3 representatives from the University Libraries (Mark Jacobs [Lauinger Library], Jane Walsh [Williams Law Library], and Nell Stewart [Dahlgren Library])
1 representative from the Office of Alumni and University Relations (Jennifer Scrivner)
GUide Meetings
All GUide committee meetings are open to Georgetown University faculty, students, staff, and administrators. Meetings are held every Thursday at 10:00 in 156 Lauinger Library. The agenda for upcoming meetings and the minutes for past meetings are available on the Web. If you would like to add a specific item to the GUide agenda, contact the Chair of the GUide Steering Committee, Deborah Everhart (​everhart@gusun.georgetown.edu​, phone 7-7091).
