Editor's Note Web sites seem to be cropping up all over campus. In this issue, we highlight several.

MyUCDavis: The pilot has ended and the campus computing coordinating councils recently made a recommendation to maintain this site.

Computer Ownership: A new site on the upcoming Student Computer Ownership expectation is also up and ready to answer parents' and incoming students' questions.

Direct Deposit: Faculty and staff now can use a Web site to request reimbursements be deposited directly into their bank accounts.

Finally, in a Web exclusive, we cover a pilot e-recruitment site.

Also in this issue, we run the second column in a series on women in technology, and we launch a new column on security issues. This one outlines what we can all do to combat computer viruses.

Next Issue
Our next issue will come out in mid-June. In it, we will preview all of IET's summer projects and the changes that will be awaiting us in the fall.

As always, we welcome comments, questions, and suggestions at ietpubs@ucdavis.edu.

On March 29, at a rare joint meeting of the Academic and Administrative Computing Coordinating Councils, over 30 campus administrators, faculty members, and staff representatives gave the MyUCDavis portal a resounding vote of approval. After 18 months of development work and a six-month pilot, MyUCDavis got one step closer to graduating magna cum laude into Tier 1 status.

You may have heard about a new service being offered on campus, Direct Deposit (aka the Electronic Funds Transfer Program or EFT). This new service enables UC Davis faculty and staff to have expense reimbursements deposited directly into their bank accounts. Students can use the program to receive direct deposit payments for financial aid or other money the University owes them. Debuted early in Winter quarter, there are now more than 2000 people using the system.
