Link Disorder?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I was looking at the list of menu links on www.psu.edu and noticed that it did not really make much sense in terms of its order.

Here is the list

  • About Penn State
  • Prospective Students
  • Academic Programs
  • Outreach Programs
  • Global Penn State
  • Campuses and Colleges
  • Visitors Guide
  • Alumni, Friends, and Giving
  • News and Announcements
  • Research
  • Health & Medicine Resources
  • Libraries
  • Athletics and Recreation
  • Current Students
  • Undergraduate Information
  • Graduate Information
  • Adult Learners
  • Faculty and Staff Services

It mixes 'audience' links with 'unit' links in a confusing manner.  Now I figure a group of people spent a long time working out which link went where in the list according to a list of priorities. But I don't see why these two different sets of links are mixed together.

Using the same order per group, why not do:

  • About Penn State
  • Academic Programs
  • Outreach Programs
  • Global Penn State
  • Campuses and Colleges
  • News and Announcements
  • Research
  • Health & Medicine Resources
  • Libraries
  • Athletics and Recreation
  • Undergraduate Information
  • Graduate Information
  • Prospective Students
  • Visitors Guide
  • Alumni, Friends, and Giving
  • Current Students
  • Adult Learners
  • Faculty and Staff Services

This makes far more sense to me, its easier to search, etc.  I might adjust the order of each list a little, but that's a minor issue.
