 Editor's Note

We have been committed to working eagerly and determinedly in the two months that followed the publication of the first issue of CISN on February 2001, to make available the information presented in the content of this second issue. Although the amount of the feedback from our readers about the first issue was less than we actually would like to receive; admittedly, it was great pleasure for us during this period of preparations to receive some. You can find more about the comments and suggestions of our readers on "Opinions and Suggestions" section.

In this issue, in addition to the topics handled in the first issue such as Printers, Health & Computers, News from METUCC, Fun Stuff, Questionnaire, you will be able to find;

statistical information about "Registrations", which constitute a significant span of time for the University, and information about the new "Critical Elective Course" applications during "Registrations",
detailed information with pictures of design studies, about the new design of www pages of the University, namely METU-CWIS,
the recently introduced services of CC, such as the new PC Room applications, the new licensed software, the new system's ("beluga") fields of service, the new CC Library Automation System.

Despite the fact that approximately 400 people have accessed to our newsletter in the first issue, 16 people have taken the time to answer our questionnaire. With this inadequate feedback, which is far below our expectations, we cannot set the guiding principles of this newsletter. We are awaiting your valuable comments and suggestions to our "Send Feedback" and "Questionnaire" sections. We'd greatly appreciate if you'd take a look at the questionnaire and tell us how we can serve you better.

I would like to gratefully acknowledge and thank the following individuals for their perpetual contribution to the issues, CISN administrator Esin Kıymaç; web administrator Evrim Akman; graphical designer Yasemin Saatçioğlu; statistician Ulaş Sunata; translator Deniz Yönter. Without their genuine efforts and commitments, this newsletter would not be published. :-)

I would also like to thank the following CC staff that contributed to the second CISN issue:
