The Office of University Communications, which maintains Stanford's main Web site, offers a set of resources and style guidelines for Webmasters of departmental or other official Stanford Web sites. The Stanford Web Guide is available at:
It includes templates appropriate for creating a departmental Web site, downloadable Stanford graphics, information about Web site accessibility, and a list of additional resources.
Examples of Web sites that have been built using these resources are:
University Communications has also teamed with a vendor, Wired Moon, to offer discounted Web site development using these official University templates. For more information, please refer to the "Resources" section of the Web Guide.
Finally, all departmental Webmasters and Web designers are encouraged to join the SU Webmasters interest group. This group meets periodically to discuss issues of interest to the maintainers of university Web sites. Resources from this group can be found at http://suwebmasters.stanford.edu/ and also on the Tech Commons Web site. (See also Stanford Technology Commons - A Community Knowledge Base for New Technologies in this issue.)
