PCMOnline Editor's Note

The job of putting each issue of Pomona College Magazine online is a tough one. Often during the process, passersby might conjecture about how all the latest technology must make the job so efficient. And, yes, while technology plays a large part in creating the SHTML and javascript for the online version of an award-winning magazine, it takes more than a computer to put the pages on the Web—it takes old-fashioned ingenuity and elbow grease.

But it's not just the online version of PCM that uses such sophisticated technology to come to life. The printed issue that comes to you in your mailbox relies on technology as well. In the "Only Online" department of PCMOnline, you'll find a photo tour of the people, technology and machinery that produce each issue of Pomona College Magazine.

In addition, "Only Online" includes a few tidbits about computers and technology from the Pomona Today archives. In 1964, Pomona College got its first computer. And in 1969, Pomona Today was already imagining how college students and education were being effected by computers. These articles were chosen as complements to the contemporary look at "Wiring the Liberal Arts". Enjoy!
