Web site for new faculty/staff photo ID launched
Beginning in early fall, campus employees can replace their old identification cards with a new, more secure and flexible version, featuring a digitized photo, signature, bar code and magnetic strip.
To get updated information on the card, a new Web site (calphotoid.berkeley.edu) has been launched. The site provides details on the card's special features and benefits, as well as frequently asked questions, additional resources and background information.
The site will also update the campus on the dates and locations of fall semester badging sessions -- which will be set up at various locations around campus -- as they are confirmed.
For information on the new identification card, call 643-6839.
