In June Web Services and the Department of University Communications joined forces to launch the new online edition of Carleton Now.

This successful collaboration was the first step in realizing the university’s initiative to move print materials online. Next Web Services will collaborate with Research to move their current magazine, Research Works, online.

In its first week live, Carleton Now received 120 new subscribers – putting the total subscription rate at over 2500.

DUC was very pleased with the results. “The online edition will have everything [our readers] come to expect: the news, the features, the pictures, the online polls.” stated Maria McClintock, Editor of Carleton Now, in the welcome video posted in the June edition.
