Among the newest features of the UI's home page on the World Wide Web is an on-line calendar of campus events. The UIUC Events Calendar "is intended to be an official, accurate and up-to-date listing of events associated with the campus that are of relatively general interest to the campus community and/or the public at large," according to descriptive information linked to the calendar page. The calendar provides access to information about lectures, performances, athletic events and other campuswide activities. Days with events scheduled are highlighted on the user's screen; a single click on a date brings up detailed information about events planned for that day. Users also may elect to view the academic calendar as well as lists of holidays, ongoing activities and exhibits. Additional options allow users to search the calendar for specific types of events or indicate particular time ranges. A search feature also is planned that will make it possible to search for events containing specific words. While the calendar may be viewed by anyone with access to the Web, "it is still very much in the development stage," according to Trudy Gordon, assistant to the director of the Office of Facility Planning and Management and coordinator of the project. The committee designing the calendar and getting it up and running - a subcommittee of the campus's Coordinating Committee on Entertainment Events - is still refining guidelines, policies and procedures governing what types of events will be included in the calendar, as well as determining who will be allowed to add, modify or delete events, Gordon said. At this point, events are being added to the calendar by Facility Planning and Management, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, MillerComm and the News Bureau (based on information submitted for inclusion in the Inside Illinois calendar). "We're looking now at a phase II, in which the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics, Assembly Hall, Illini Union Board and Star Course will be adding events soon," Gordon said. Yet to be determined is how and when other groups or individuals - such as registered student organizations - will be authorized to add events to this calendar. Meanwhile, she said, "we don't want people to e-mail announcements to us, or to the calendar's designer, Mike Grady of the Computing and Communications Services Office." Gordon added that the committee does welcome feedback, and noted there is an option available on the calendar that allows people to send in ideas.
