Web Information Coordinator
Each group must have a person designated as the Web Information Coordinator. This person is responsible for the image of the group, ensuring that information is timely and accurate. If the Web Information Coordinator determines that an individual's pages are not appropriate in the context of the group pages, he or she may request pages more specifically designed for use by the group. Web Information Coordinators are encouraged, but not required, to participate in the campus Web Walkers group, to keep abreast of current campus Web developments.
- Explore other World Wide Web pages to see the strengths and weaknesses of other organizations.
- Work with others in your group to outline what you'd like your pages to look like.
It is recommended that, at a minimum, the head of the group review the group's pages at least twice a year. Determine who in the group needs to give the final OK to your Web pages, and who will fill in for the Web Information Coordinator.
Backup and Documentation
- Establish review and backup procedures.
- Choose a backup person(s) who can fill in when others are not available. Make sure they have userids that have permission to write to the group's pages and that they know how to maintain the pages.
- Document your work for the backup person(s).
- The System Administrators for the campus web server are not responsible for fixing web pages; make sure members of your group can change pages should a crisis arise.
- The group page must contain a description of the group with address
and full telephone number (including area code). It is recommended
that the name of the group's leader (for example, the department chair)
also be included.
- Each group must include a mailer on its home page and establish
procedures for processing email in a timely fashion.
- Refer to the University as the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill or UNC-CH (not UNC).
- It is recommended that you include a link to your group's home page
at the bottom of each of your pages.
- Pay careful attention to its design and content and carefully consider
links that you make to Web pages outside your group's directory. Check
outside links and sublinks frequently to make sure they still work
and they contribute to the goals of your group's pages. Your group
web page describes your department or organization to the world.
- Also, see the UNC Web Accessibility
guidelines to make your pages accessible to the disabled.
Your pages should reflect the creativity of your department and need not look like other UNC-CH pages. If you wish to follow the format of the higher level pages refer to the UNC-CH template for instructions.
