The about USF Live Directory page at the Personos website said it much better:
The USF Live Directory is a place to find up-to-date information about the faculty and staff at the University of San Francisco. It is kept up-to-date because it is very easy for community members to post articles and associate them with people– no web designer needed! It provides a people-centric search of USF’s subset of the web.
Check out Personos if you haven’t – you’ll be glad you did…
And kudos to Karen Johnson for setting this up!
