Mercury (Hg) is a central repository for sharing news and events at Georgia Tech. It can be used to publish news and events to any campus website, but cannot be used with websites hosted outside our campus network.
The basic concept for using Mercury is that a campus unit will have a news and events group created on the Mercury server (http://hg.gatech.edu/). The unit can then add the Mercury Hg Reader module to their website to pull news and events from their Mercury group and display those items on their web pages.
If you are looking for information on how to install and manage the Mercury Hg Reader module, we have a separate section about Mercury for Website Developers.
