Obtaining the latest CU-SeeMe Phone Book from the Web

As new counties come on line and new on-campus experts join the system, the phone book for CUSeeMe (our videoconferencing software) will undergo updates so that users can always have the latest list of persons to contact. This page will always reference the latest version of the phonebook. Note that this is available for the PC version only; Mac users should contact John VanDyk for phone book updates.

Changes in this release of the phone book (4/27/98)

  • Added Jim Pease, extension specialist for animal ecology
  • Removed Marlin Rice (he's on leave until January 1999)
  • Added Rich Pope, extension specialist for entomology
  • Updated conference entries to point to our new conference server
