How to Use the Web Style Guide

The Web Style Guide presents a clear approach to creating quality website content that follows the best practices of online publishing. This guide is not intended to be a training manual but rather a reference tool. University publishers can use the Web Style Guide as a resource for creating a high quality online experience for the university's website audiences. 

The guide covers the basics of page layout, the purpose of different page types and their intended content, and includes a compendium of available design components

Web publishers will also find important information about responsive design and mobile-friendly websites, and how to use photography and videos to make a visual impact. 

We require all content publishers to follow these publishing guidelines in order to create the best possible online experience for our diverse website audience.
