The Record is published on Mondays, weekly September-April except for holiday breaks, twice a month May-July and once in August.
It can be found in racks in more than 70 campus locations, generally in building lobbies. Some departments receive copies via Campus Mail for re-distribution to their faculty and staff. If your department would like to be added to that list, give us a call, 764-0105 or send e-mail to email@example.com. Well need the department name, address and number of staff members. We dont print enough copies for everyone, so please share with colleagues.
In addition, the Record is mailed to 7,000 faculty and staff retirees and those on leave via third-class mail.
The Record also appears online each week at www.umich.edu/~urecord. Readers interested in a quick look at the main articles are encouraged to join UROnline, an automatic e-mail message that includes a brief synopsis of all major articles. To join UROnline, send an e-mail message to UROnlinefirstname.lastname@example.org with the word SUBSCRIBE in the subject line. You can remove yourself from the list at any time by sending e-mail to UROnlineemail@example.com with the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line.
Each issue of the Record carries a number of regular features. The deadline for receipt of information submitted by U-M units or organizations for many of these columns is 5 p.m. the Tuesday preceding publication. In other words, if you want something published in the Sept. 20 issue, we must receive it by 5 p.m. Sept. 14.
Information must be in writing and can be sent via fax (764-7084), Campus Mail (412 Maynard 1399) or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regular columns include:
Police Beat, a report on criminal activities and a map showing the campus locations of some criminal activities, is prepared each month in conjunction with the Department of Public Safety and the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center.
The Record carries display advertising on a contract basis for U-M units and outside organizations, with U-M units receiving a discounted rate. Publication of an advertisement does not imply endorsement of the organization or its products or services. Details about advertising are on our Web site or can be obtained by contacting any Record staff member.
