Good afternoon, catalog contributors.

Here are two important updates as we approach our first catalog deadline.

FINAL Catalog Open Lab Training Tomorrow

Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2–3:30 p.m., Regent 1B60

Bring your laptop and work with a catalog administrator to resolve any remaining questions or issues with catalog content.

Catalog Edit Deadline: Extended

Many of you have already edited and approved your catalog pages. THANK YOU for your assistance with this project and for meeting the published deadline. You all belong on Santa’s nice list!

However, some pages are still being edited by approvers early in the workflow, meaning that after the current editor hits “Approve,” at least one person (typically two or three) will need to review and approve the page themselves by the deadline.

To give those approvers time to properly review each page during this busy time of year, we’re extending the final deadline to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 21.

Please make sure everyone in the workflow has finished approving pages by that time. We will not be responsible for any coal that may or may not appear in tardy approvers’ stockings.

On Dec. 22, the catalog team will begin implementing larger-scale changes and updates. We’ll also let you know if we see any content that could benefit from additional work.

If you have any questions, please email us at
