New - Address Book
This year we have an exciting new feature for thejcr.co.uk to announce - an online Address Book of everyone in college, accessible by all students to find each other quickly and easily. Everyone will have a contact card initially with their name, Hermes email and year group, and when you first visit the page you'll be prompted to fill in more personal info - Facebook address, email, college room and phone no., etc. All of this is entirely optional, but we hope people will be happy sharing these details within our close community. If everyone fills in their card, the whole college will find contacting each other a lot easier.
Since this new system requires a mass input of data before becoming useful to people, we have decided that, in order to view the catalogue, you must first fill in your own profile. We feel this is only fair, and should mean that everyone's details fill up the database pretty quickly.
This system has been operated at other colleges with success. Using the College records held by the Tutorial Office, we have pre-populated our new system with the CRSids, names and matriculation years of every student at Christ's. For most people, this is no more information than is already available University-wide on UCS Lookup, but having it on the JCR website means easier access, and integration with more useful personal details. We really hope you'll find the Address Book a useful resource, and be keen to use it on a mutual basis. However, we appreciate privacy is a serious issue, therefore all other fields are optional - only share what you're happy for all Christ's students to see. This simple system ensures no data that we store can be shared with anyone you don't want it to.
In the hopefully unlikely circumstance you would rather be removed from the database altogether, we can hide your profile so it is completely deleted from the Address Book. If you wish to do this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and CRSid, and we will process your request as soon as possible. Without a profile you may be unable to use the system to view others' details.

Thanks for reading; we hope you enjoying using the new address book!
