So nice to see and talk to everyone who attended. I hope everyone who wanted coffee, got coffee. I’ll miss the Higher Grounds Coffee – y mis amigas, Darly and Karen.
Below are the notes from your comments/questions/hopes for the future of the School of Medicine websites; and a list of free broken link checkers that I recommend.
It has been my pleasure to be the webmaster for the school medicine for the past 10 years. And I wish you bold new successes in the future.If you have questions, comments, or concerns please send them to SOMWEB@virginia.edu.
Broken Link Checkers:
- Broken Link Check — Online, limited to 3000 pages.
- LinkChecker — Windows, Macintosh & Linux
- Integrity — Macintosh only. (this is what I use)
Here is the list of wish list items that were brought up during today’s meeting….

- Broken link checker for each site
- Ray has a service that he will share. (above)
- Central Repository that lists training requirements for each staff type
- Allow access to Intranet
- SOM stopped supporting it 2 years ago – RFD data pull
- Notes from Bill (PHS site)
- I would love to see some way to always have the same filtered view each time I return to a backend view.
- How about a forum to ask questions of the group, monitored by SOM Web staff, like uweb and the LSPs? –I’m willing when available and knowledgeable to go to a colleague’s space and show them how to do things. The forum could facilitate this kind of activity.
Lot’s of great ideas. I love the community knowledge sharing idea from Bill in the form of a forum or whatever.
