computer-based tutorials and other instructional materials is one of the key
functions of Daphne, the central web server for Academic Computing. Daphne,
along with WWW, is a source for information on academic and vocational programs,
college organizations, and faculty & staff WebPages. Faculty and staff
interested in having instructional web content are encouraged to
contact Daphne's administrator, Mr. Terry Gray. Terry may be contacted by email
by phone at ext. 2877, or in person by going to the CAI lab on the first floor
of the Library.
Palomar's window to the world wide web is

portal/main web server for the Palomar Community College District. Student

divisions and departments who have effectively used the world wide web
to communicate with students, faculty, staff, and the public.
Persons interested in having content placed on one of the other servers are
urged to contact that web server's administrator. If you are interested in
having your own divisional or departmental web server please contact Mr. Terry
