CPSCinfo is an experimental information service which presents
administrative and academic information to Computer Science
students at the University of Calgary. This paper describes the system,
including the page presentation scheme with its highly interactive
user interface, and the database and how it was constructed. Operational
aspects such as database maintenance are discussed.
The system has been in use for one year. The user community is still
growing rapidly and has not yet reached a steady state. Usage by
students has been recorded, and student perceptions elicited by
means of a questionnaire. Perhaps it is still too early to evaluate the
real worth of CPSCinfo; nevertheless, the usage and survey data
support some tentative conclusions. These appear to apply equally to
other, similar, information systems.
