New online phone directory available
By Dawn Pauli, contributing writer
Finding phone numbers and office addresses for Oakland University faculty and staff is now a snap using an updated online phone directory.
The directory can be found three different ways:
, click on SAIL on the bottom right, select Campus Directory, then Employee/Department DirectoryAt www.oakland.edu, click on Faculty & Staff, select OU Telephone Book, then Employee/Department Directory
“The production of a printed telephone book continued to be a cost-intensive effort that was out-of-date immediately after printing,” said Theresa Rowe, assistant vice president of University Technology Services. “The cabinet reviewed the situation and approved the creation of a new online phone directory.”
Individuals can be searched by name or department through a drop-down list.
Also, printable PDF listings of general department and fax numbers, departments, or a complete list by last name, are available. The lists are updated weekly, so unlike the old phone book, employees can print lists including new employees at any time.
The information in the online directory and the PDF listings are generated from Banner. Employees are encouraged to review the listings and update any incorrect information by contacting their department or office representative.
