NOVA PLAZA SMALL BUSINESS CONNECTION is a moderated discussion board based on the Discus program from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. All Discus scripts and static files were authored by Kevin W. Paulisse with design ideas and implementation advice from William F. Polik. All files associated with Discus are copyright © 1997 by Kevin W. Paulisse and William F. Polik, all rights reserved.

Discus is free and can be downloaded immediately! To learn more about the Discus program, or to download your own free copy, visit the Discus home page.

The Discus development team gratefully acknowledges the following individuals who assisted in beta testing the original product: Dr. Matthew Elrod, Greg Martin, Elizabeth Yared, and the spring 1997 Hope College Chemistry 344, Chemistry 346, and Chemistry 422 classes. The original development of Discus as a chemistry discussion board was funded by a Howard Hughes Medical Foundation Faculty Development grant and the servers used for the development of Discus were partially funded by grants from the National Science Foundation.
