University Relations is updating its online Experts Guide for media and is asking faculty to submit information about their areas of expertise.
All faculty on Wednesday received an e-mail notice giving instructions on how to submit information online at www.news.ku.edu/~kunews/cgi-bin/expert/intake.shtml. by Feb. 15. A redesigned guide, with additional features and updated information from faculty, will be posted later this spring.
The Experts Guide – at www.experts.ku.edu – is maintained as a service to media ranging from local and regional newspapers and TV stations to such national and international outlets as the New York Times, NPR and CNN.
The guide presently provides the names and areas of expertise of more than 500 faculty members who are willing to speak authoritatively on an array of news, research and current-events topics.
