La Salle facilitates operations thru the Intranet

Contrary to common belief, the Intranet is not just another version of the DLSU web site ( More than just showcasing new web layouts and graphics, the Intranet was set up for the entire University to facilitate its everyday activities.

Similar to the DLSU home page, which is commonly referred to as the Internet, the Intranet is also a web-based facility, which can be accessed through the URL using any browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.).

The difference between the two primarily lies on who can access the facility. Everyone can view the DLSU home page or the Internet, but the Intranet can be viewed only by the DLSU community using any online PC inside the University.

On certain cases, a particular page on the Intranet can be set to be viewed only by a particular group of people or by members of a particular unit or department to maintain confidentiality over some sensitive information.

Different offices, colleges and departments can have their own space on the Intranet where documents like office handbook, guidelines, policies, procedures, course information, and the like can be posted.

The Intranet saves time and operational costs since it centralizes information resources that can be easily accessed anytime. It allows faculty members to communicate course notes and other information to their students by posting these on their home page to be linked to their department’s home pages. Some faculty members are already doing this.

Offices can send a copy of forms (such as request forms, update forms, etc.) to other offices or individual for downloading and printing, or send announcements to the academic community.

The Information Technology Center encourages members of the community to use the Intranet now. To convert documents electronically, contact the Help Desk at local 316 or 466 or send an e-mail to
