Revamped Web Site Better Serves PAT Council
By Jody Record, Campus Journal Editor
March 12, 2008
Responding to feedback, the PAT Council has launched a new Web site it hopes
will provide more opportunities for PAT employees to communicate with their
representatives and express any concerns they may have.
Work is underway to transfer the information from the old site to the new
one (http://patcouncil.sr.unh.edu/ ). During migration, as content is transferred,
the old Web site links will be altered to point to the new site. While navigating
the old site you may find yourself suddenly transferred to the new one. Eventually,
once all the content has been migrated, the top level link will redirect
you to the new site.
PAT councilors will have an account on the new site allowing them to add
or update content as needed. Account holders will also have access to a private
group area where members can share draft documents and hold forum conversations
that are not visible to non-members. Public information on the site can be
accessed by anyone.
Additionally, the new site will make it easy to conduct polls, find information
on recent actions and read minutes from PAT meetings dating back to 1994.
There is also a list of PAT council members, the district they represent
and how to contact them.
The tabs across the top of the page—home, news, committees, etc.--
make navigation simple. Below the tabs you’ll find a label and a set
of links that will provide shortcuts to other locations within the site.
Boxes on the left and right side of the page will house current information.
Poll questions will also show up here. (The current question solicits feedback
on the new site). A box allowing for a search of the site is in the top right
corner of the page.
