In Spring 1988, the college
catalog will change to a two year
instead of the one year catalog.
“The idea is to stay with the
same format. We’ll change the
cover, of course, and we’ll update
the course description. There may
be some minor improvements
made where we see a need, but
other than that, it will be pretty
much the same kind of catalog as
we have now,” said Bill Symes,
Public Information Supervisor.
One advantage of the two year
catalog is that it will save about
$3,000 because only one catalog
needs to be printed instead of
two. The other advantage is that
it will save staff time. Staff in­
volved in producing a catalog is,
counseling, admissions, public in-
abuses rather than internal

Austin was interested in doing
something similar with the sub-
formation, publications, instruc­
tion, the department chairs, and
assistant deans.
“The idea has really been
around for a couple of years, but
we just got serious about it this
last Fall,” Symes expressed. Lyle
Reese, Dean of Instruction,
pointed out that “I did recom­
mend we went to a two year
catalog,” because of the issue be­
ing raised whether to convert to a
semester system or not.
“The disadvantage is that it is
more difficult to stay current,
with curriculums that are chang­
ing. Some doubts has been raised
as to how timely the catalog is go­
ing to be towards the end of the
second year,” Symes said.
To solve that problem a sup­
plement will come out the second
year to add extra course descrip-
tions, but that won’t be a big pro­
blem. “The curriculum patterns,
are not changing all that rapidly.
I think there will be less of that
with a two year catalog,” Reese
“A lot of community colleges
have gone to a two year catalog
recently for basically those same
reasons, to save money and staff
time. So, it is not as if it were
revolutionary, it just makes
sense,” said Symes.
The first draft for the catalog is
done. The final draft will go to
the printer by March 14 and the
due date is April 1. Instead of
10,000 copies, 20,000 copies of
the two year catalog will be

longer,” Symes explained.
