White Pages Project to Provide Electronic Review, Updating of Employee Listings

In early January 2006, a team of IET, Health System and University Communications representatives kicked off a project to replace the current paper-based and error-prone process used for updating the UC Davis and UC Davis Health System print and online directories. The "White Pages" Project will provide a new Web-based mechanism for departments to review and edit all employee listings electronically. By developing an application that centrally manages and functions as the system of record for directory information, this project will also allow for the print and online publishing of additional directory information (i.e., multiple appointments, multiple email addresses and telephone numbers). Focus groups will be held in March and April, and a communication plan is under development. The new service is scheduled for roll out in June 2006.
