The Answers1 What is a Centre Web Site?
An IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre web site is a set of web pages that uses photographs and written descriptions to show what you have developed as a student learning resource centre, how it is used by your IEEE student members, and how it is used to promote the IEEE to non-IEEE members.
The opening page of this set is linked to your branch home page, so that visitors to your branch site will be aware you have such a centre and what it contains.
This site is different from your branch site because it focuses on your centre, whereas your branch site will likely contain a lot of other information.
Your opening page should have the following heading with a link to the IEEE Canadian Foundation web site:
You may find it useful to view the foundation web pages (one each for Universities and Colleges) that contains all the links to department, branch, and centre web sites - so you can see what other branches have done, both with their centre and their associated web site.
2 Why have a Centre Web Site?
An IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre is something special that your branch should be proud of. You have your own space, unique facilities, and you provide extra services to your fellow students.
Because these sites are linked from the foundation's web site, more people become aware of what you have done - this brings credit to your IEEE student branch and to your University or College.
Your fellow IEEE student volunteers, planned it, obtained permission from your department chair and faculty dean to have the room alocated to your branch, sucessfully requested a grant from the IEEE Canadian Foundation to cover part of the cost of the equipment, and you keep it going, and get useful management experience
3 How do I get my new Centre Web Site linked?
Just go to the IEEE Canadian Foundation web site, click on "Branch Updates" on the left side navigation panel, and fill in the form provided, and use the input box near the bottom of the form (item 10) to tell the foundation that you have a new URL to be linked.
4 Does a Centre Web Site help when I apply for an upgrade grant?
Yes, because the foundation committee that evaluates grant applications can see what facilities you have, what kind of services you offer, and how effectively you have used previous foundation grants to your branch.
