While I’m Having Good Ideas…

This is something else that’s been at the back of my mind for quite a while.

And yes I am aware that I’m just creating nightmare project ideas!

A
directory of facts about Warwick – each fact, or group of facts, has an
owner who is responsible for keeping his facts updated.

This would have three functions:

  1. It would be a repository for the information that people carry around with them and we lose when they leave the organisation.
  2. It would act as a reference guide for people representing the University
  3. It would give the definitive information so that we don’t have two answers around the organisation

The kind of random questions that find their way to my telephone line include:

  • How many students did we have in 1975?
  • How many trees are on campus?
  • How many WGA Scholars do we have at the moment?

Some of it might be quite trivial, but all of it would undoubtedly be useful at some point.

Something a bit like the University Profile – but more wide-ranging.

We
are currently working on a kind of mix & match slide library for
people who want general slides about aspects of the University. i.e.
history, environment, finances etc.

This is because:

(a) a lot of people come to us for slides
(b) we see a variety of slides with varying degrees of accuracy

    Admittedly this idea is less good than the Trombinoscope ….
