There have always been a lot of questions related to a few specific policies or standards for use of electronic communications at the University. Over the years, as the technology has changed and expanded, our office has worked to keep up, try to inform, and formulate standards that give everyone as much freedom as possible.
Two important things have happened in the past few months regarding policy and electronic communications; the elimination of the WWW Publishing Policy and the updates to the Brand Policy. For details see my earlier post on Policy Updates.
The Brand Policy now refers to the requirements posted on http://www.webdepot.umn.edu/req.php. This will be the temporary home for these requirements as we continue to work on the new "Our Brand" site.
We hope that you'll find the information applicable to what you're doing and we welcome any comments or insight about any of the topics you see.
