A Bulletin Creation Example

  1. Create all faculty members that will be in the bulletin if they haven't already been created
  2. Create a faculty listing to attach to the end of your bulletin. For an example of what this looks like in the actual bulletin turn to page 162 of the hard copy of the Graduate Studies Bulletin 2008-2010.
  3. Create a bulletin and give it a meaningful name like "Graduate Studies Bulletin 2010-2012".
  4. Create any info pages that need to be a part of the bulletin. For an example of what this looks like in the actual bulletin turn to page 16 of the hard copy of the Graduate Studies Bulletin 2008-2010. The page titled, "Fees and Payment Information" would be an info page in the online bulletin
  5. Create the colleges/departments relevant to your bulletin. For an example of what this looks like in the actual bulletin turn to page 37 of the hard copy of the Graduate Studies Bulletin 2008-2010. "College of Business" on this page is the college in this case. This serves as a folder that will holder information pertaining to this college. Note: You can add info pages in this context just as you can in the beginning of the bulletin.
  6. Create the programs relevant to the college/department. On page 37 of the hard copy of the Graduate Studies Bulletin 2008-2010 "Information Systems" would be a program in the online bulletin. Note: You can add info pages in this context just as you can in the beginning of the bulletin.
  7. Create the courses relevant to the program. On page 49 of the hard copy of the Graduate Studies Bulletin 2008-2010 "Economics 521 - Labor Economics" would be a course in the Economics program.
