New website launched

The Plant Sciences website has been undergoing an overhaul to coincide with the arrival of a new server. Several pages have moved, including the home page which has moved to (so will no longer work). Several pages are now accessible by adding a keyword to the address: library; herbarium; seminars; jobs; news; grads and research.

There is a new section called Departmental Resources where members of the Department will be able to find announcements, a downloadable phone list (soon to be a searchable online database), service level agreements and other useful links and pieces of information. We've been working towards online copies of manuals, to remove some of the paper wastage and so the Safety Handbook can be found in the new Safety section where a What's New page will inform you of any changes since the last publication. The Welcome Pack and Graduate Student Handbook are also online. Another new section is Post-Graduate Training where we have tried to put anything useful for graduate students. Any ideas as to what's useful are always welcome! If you get lost navigating around the site then click on the A-Z button at the top right to find a site index and if you're really stuck, try the help button.
