In 1997 Wake Forest University began the project of building a suite of personalized Web services that is now known as a portal. By July of 1998, we had a fully implemented and successful intranet that delivered almost one hundred personalized, filtered Web services to all students, faculty and staff, plus those alumni and parents who applied for a free account. Being on the leading edge of such an effort meant that we discovered on our own what works and what does not, without influence from portal vendors or benefit of advice from our peers at other institutions. This paper discusses successful design and implementation strategies that may be useful to others who are considering a portal solution.
