Earlier this week, we updated the University of Minnesota Morris web site with an improved "Directory lookup" feature. Working with University Relations, we believe this will help users across the campus find people more easily.
Clicking the "Directories" link at the top of any UMM web page now brings you to directory.morris.umn.edu/ - feel free to bookmark this page! I would like to share a few notes about the new "Directories" page:
Looking for someone at the Morris campus?
- The new "Directories" page has a "Search for People" that defaults to Morris, making it easier to find people. You can do partial name searches - on the first name, last name, or both. For example, searching for "J Hall" or "Jim H" will quickly return results for "Jim Hall". More complete information will give a better search.
Looking for something on a web site?
- As always, you can search the University of Minnesota web site using the "Go" box in the right-hand column of any UMM web page. The new "Directories" page has a "Search Web Sites" with the option to pull up advanced search options, to quickly narrow down your search to just those pages that interest you.
Need a printed directory?
- The printable telephone directory is available as "Telephone Extensions" on the right-hand column of the new "Directories" page. This is the same as the blue printed directory, which is distributed across campus every other year.
We have removed the student PO box lookup function, as email is the official student communication at the University of Minnesota. This email policy was adopted by the vice chancellors in 2007.
However, we understand that some faculty and staff sometimes need to send printed materials to student PO boxes. The Office of Information Technology at the Twin Cities campus is working to add PO box information to the "Search for People" when searching for Morris students. Until this is ready, Clare Dingley (Registrar) has made a version of the PO box data available through NetFiles. Please contact Clare directly if you need access to this.
