In just a few minutes at the keyboard, computer users can get the most up-to-date information from the 165th Semiannual Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
And they can get it several hours before the newspaper arrives on doorsteps, via the Crossroads Information Network and the new Deseret News World Wide Web page throughout the conference.The Deseret News Web page has had more than 30,000 hits since it was launched last Wednesday.
Because the page is accessible through the Internet, those living outside Utah will continue to have access to the Deseret News once they return home.
Besides enjoying comprehensive conference coverage, readers can browse through world, national and local news, sports and weather information, which are all updated throughout the day seven days a week.
"Online services are an excellent way for people worldwide to get news of the LDS Church, or any other type of news," said Deseret News online editor Steve Hawkins.
On the Web site, text from past issues of the Church News or the Deseret News from 1994 and 1995 are easily accessed through the Deseret News archives. The Web site is also a bridge to selected other Utah Web pages.
Address for the Web site is: http://www.desnews.com or 22.214.171.124. To subscribe to Crossroads, call 237-2176.
