There have been a number of blog posts discussing the features of TU in the Community, as well as some of the projects that are listed in the database. But have you ever wondered about how the website was created and launched?

When I first started in my position, one of my tasks was to edit and expand a white paper about TU in the Community, that was started by my colleague, Lindsey Meyer. This paper explained how TU in the Community was conceived and how it is used.

Below, you can click on the picture to read the finished version of the white paper and learn about:

  • The history of TU in the Community;
  • The features of the website;
  • The management of the website; and
  • The future of TU in the Community.

This white paper was a great way for me to learn more about TU in the Community and its many uses. I think that users of the website, as well as other institutions looking to launch or revamp their own outreach websites, will also find the paper helpful.

If you have any questions about TU in the Community that have not been answered here, please contact me at 410-704-2678 or kbeckett@towson.edu. I would be more than happy to chat with you about the website and searchable database and how it can be of use to you!
