for taking my text-only document back in August 1995 and creating
the first html version of this directory, and for helpful
suggestions on subsequent versions of this work.

Here are some journal entries from the early years of this Directory's development, going back in time to the original idea.

MAJOR REPAIRS & UPDATE COMPLETED
It took a long time to track down the problems with the database. And
then life got in the way. Today, however, everything is back on track.
Over 100 new additions and revisions have been made to the Directory
(too many to list here). There are now 301 entries in the Directory! The
turn-around time for new submissions & revisions will now be much
quicker (I know some of you have been waiting a long time to see your
submission). And there are plans for a redesigned interface for the
Directory. Stay tuned (and feel free to
send me your suggestions)!
Thank you all for your patience &

I am in the process of fixing the Directory database. Unfortunately the
database was corrupted when a well-meaning graduate assistant tried to
update the Directory last year, damaging the database in such a way that
entries were duplicated, and new entries were not appearing. I finally
have the database back to where it was about 6 months ago, and now I am
manually adding the new additions. Please note: if you do not see
your site listed in the Directory, please resubmit your listing -
some of the submissions made over the past 6 months were lost due to the
Thank you for your patience!

Student Counseling Centers on the Web
October 21, 1996
This edition of the Counseling Centers on the Internet Directory
represents a major revision over its predecessors. The table of contents
has been reworked, this "What's New" page has been added, and the entire
Directory has been reviewed to correct errors, remove no-longer-existing
links, and basically clean things up a bit. The major change, however,
has been the addition of a SEARCH facility. This will allow you
to search the entire database and construct your own reports for just
the information you want. You can search by content, location, and any
other text that appears in the Directory.
NEW WEB SITES
When I began this directory, there were just a handful of Counseling
Centers on-line, and new sites appeared slowly. Today, in contrast, new
sites created by Counseling Centers are appearing weekly, if not daily,
and this Directory expands at an amazing rate. I once referred to the
Directory in the Introduction as "this little document" -- but no
AN EARLY DIRECTORY
- Here's an early version of the
Directory, a text-only file. This gives a good idea of how far, and quickly,
things have developed.
THE ORIGINAL IDEA
- Here's some stuff that I thought was kind of
fun regarding the history of this site. It provides a window into some of my
original thoughts about this web site. This is back in the days when the web was
just beginning, gopher was dominant, and Mosaic was the only web-browser of
note. My, how things have changed!
