Web Policy Review

Site Reviews And University Standards (IV.A.1.f., IV.A.1.i., IV.A.1.j., IV.A.1.k.)

f. If a UK institutional or unit signature is included on any Web material, it must be the appropriate signature and in accordance with the University's Graphic Standards. Copies of the official institutional and unit signatures are available from University Public Relations for use in the creation of Web materials.

i. Web sites having gone through major revisions or newly developed Web sites must be submitted to University Public Relations for a Site Review.  

j. Standards pertaining to the visual appearance of official University materials are the responsibility of University Public Relations (257-3303) and must be followed for electronic publications (official Web materials) just as they would be for any other publication.

NOTE: Use of the University of Kentucky institutional signature is not required on Web pages except as part of the University's universal navigation bar, although use of University Public Relations developed and approved unit signatures is encouraged.

k. Guidelines for official Web materials together with instructions for their implementation are maintained by University Public Relations.

Please see the Web Policy for further details (these may not be part of the revised policies).
