Campus ‘intranet’ brings news, information to desktops

The campus will soon have “one-stop shopping” on its desktop computers with the introduction Aug. 15 of the new MyBGSU.

Through one log-on, campus users will be able to check out the weather and breaking news, view their email and MeetingMaker, use Blackboard/eLearning, and access their payroll and other financial information along with all the other online services BGSU offers.

Monitor and the daily Marketing and Communications announcements will also be found at the site.

The new intranet will provide the University with a site just for campus users. Watch Monitor Monthly and the Connect newsletter for more information on this helpful tool coming soon to your computer.
