Dear Chronicle

Summer greetings from Union.

In the Office of Communications, we're using the warm months
to plan for some exciting new projects. One of those will be next month's
launch of a new version of the Chronicle,
the weekly newsletter of the Union College

The Chronicle,
long a “paper first” publication has also become a popular read on the Web in
recent years, with an increasingly large portion of our readers using the Web
as their primary source for reading the Chronicle.
Starting this fall, Sept. 13 to be exact, we plan to further that trend by publishing
the Chronicle as a “Web first”

This change will speed the delivery of news and allow for
more complete coverage of campus happenings. Without the current limitations of
a paper layout, we can include longer stories, more photos (in color) and links
to a number of related sites and stories.

We know that some readers prefer a paper version of the Chronicle, so we've developed a “print
friendly” version that can easily be printed to paper from the Web. Just click
on the “print this page” link you see on any page in the Chronicle site.

The Chronicle will
be published on Thursday each week during academic terms (30 times per year). On-campus
users will be notified weekly via e-mail when the Chronicle is published. Off-campus users are welcome to sign up for
“About U,” Union's bi-weekly electronic newsletter.
About U includes all of the stories from the Chronicle as well as stories fromUnionCollegemagazine, athletics and press releases. To sign up for About U, visit and enter
your name and email address.

And for readers who don't have access to the Web, each week we
will do a limited run of paper copies for distribution on campus and to
off-campus readers. If you do not have access to the Web, or would simply prefer
the Chronicle on paper, please call
Jill Warner in the Office of Communications, 388-6131.

Regardless of the format you prefer – electronic or paper –
our goal is the same: to deliver the news about Union in a timely, interesting
and informative way. Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions or

The first Chronicle
of the fall will be published on Sept. 13. Until then, enjoy the rest of the
