After 40 years of print publication, The Kolus has finally entered the 21st century. Over the past several weeks, the Kolus staff has worked to put together an online edition, and it’s finally ready.

The website is intended to help organize the newspaper. Throughout the Kolus’s 40-year existence, newspapers have been lost. Exploring the history of Shorewood becomes a lot easier when the information doesn’t have to be searched for in near-ancient archives. The website presents its users with a search bar, which allows work to be found merely by searching for the article’s name, or the name of its author.

The accessibility of distributing information is also a reason the website has been activated. It allows the reporters to keep up on the latest news, photographers to upload weekly, and artists to produce their art with more consistency.

Along with the luxuries that the staff receives, it actually can benefit its users as well. For those who enjoy sending letters, or notes to the editor, the website makes it much easier. Now, you can send letters by:
1. Scrolling the cursor over the “About” tab at the top of the top-right portion on the home page
2. As the staff tab drops down, scroll cursor over it
3. Select “Submit a letter”

However, those who love the printed copies have nothing to fear. In addition to the website, printed editions will be distributed starting later this fall.

The Shorewood cast and especially business manager Sam Anschell are thrilled to be working with a new medium. “I’m incredibly excited about engaging with the multimedia tools we now have accessible to us,” said Anschell.
