Phone directories issued

Copies of the 1996-97 Faculty and Staff and Student Directories are now available in the 36 Distributed Mail Centers (DMCs).

The Communications Office will leave an appropriate number of directories for pickup, based on the number of employees served by each DMC. To ensure even distribution of faculty/staff directories, the office asks people to pick up only enough copies for each person in his or her area and to sign the sheet provided in each DMC. The student directory is mailed with labels to a list of faculty and staff.

Anyone needing extra copies of either directory may e-mail or in the Communications Office after Friday, Oct. 25, stating the required quantity.

The covers for this year's directories were designed by Celia Metcalf of Design Services. The cover of the Faculty and Staff Directory features a photograph by Felice Frankel, artist-in-residence at the Edgerton Center and visiting lecturer in electrical engineering and computer science, who specializes in capturing science through photography and digital imaging. Ms. Frankel teaches a seminar entitled "Macro and Micro Imaging: Photographing Science," in which students explore the role of photography in science. The cover of the Student Directory features a photograph by one of her students, Katherine Notter (SB '96, chemical engineering).
