The Web site for Harvard Magazine, Harvard’s alumni publication, has also been revamped to better reflect its glossy and colorful magazine format. The site now features entire issues online, flashing dynamic graphics, and audio and video clips that enhance articles. Alumni who browse the Web site are greeted with the latest-breaking news at Harvard, including updates on the University’s finances.
“Our revamped Web site aims to provide users even more access to breaking news about the University at an especially critical time,” said Harvard Magazine Editor John S. Rosenberg. “Along with enhanced online coverage of alumni … [the Web site] makes it easier to access our complete current contents and online archives.”
Other new features include a comments section following articles, where visitors can respond to stories and interact with each other. Alumni can still access familiar functions like submitting Class Notes, classified ads, or change-of-address forms — all easily located under a user-friendly navigation bar.
“We look forward to introducing further improvements in the months ahead,” said Rosenberg, who already pinpoints interactive Class Notes as a future target. But for now, he said, “We welcome users’ comments and suggestions.”
