"This site is a one-stop source of information and resources for anyone interested in graphic communication education," the reviewer commented. "Visitors will find the Virtual Textbook, with more than 330 online tutorials and instructional activities published by and for the graphic communication community, Virtual Tours that illustrate how the printing and publishing industry works, a comprehensive listing of Web Tools, Associations, Career Information, Publications, and more. A Listserv is offered for educators and industry workers to share information and ideas. Additionally, educators will find suggested ways to use Graphic Comm Central in the classroom."

Graphic Comm Central was created in 1997 by Dr. Mark Sanders, associate professor at Virginia Polytechnic and State University, with a GAERF grant.

The site also received an Excellence in Education Award from the Electronic Document Systems Foundation (EDSF) in 1999, recognizing "Innovation in Online Education and Training in the Document Systems Industry."
