GRAPHICS STANDARDS

They are now up at www.uky.edu/Graphics/. You''ll need to click on the "Web Graphics (PDF)" link to view the standards pertaining to the Web. Basically, there are more options than before, although institutional signatures are somewhat restricted to a version of the "stacked" logo. Details about fonts, colors and a Web color guide are also included. And, as in the past, UK HealthCare units have different standards.

A long awaited feature of the new site is that you can now download the UK and See Blue logos. Templates for stationary, e-mail and PowerPoint presentations are included. This area of the site requires a login using your unique UKID login and password without placing "AD" or "MC" before your login name.

A new Style Guide (along with Appendix A, B and C) is also available with updated grammatical elements for UK writers and Web content managers. Simply click on a word or phrase and a "blind" opens to reveal explanantions along with correct spellings and usages. Click again on the word or phrase and the "blind" closes.

Notes from Campus

UK Web Statistics

Several have wondered the availability of raw monthly statistics for UK Web sites.

CAMPUS - Numbers for the uky.edu server prior to May 2007 are still found here. But the server that created those statistics was decommissioned and a new system has not been implemented. A suggestion is to register for Google Analytics, which requires a script be placed on all pages from which you desire statistics.

MEDICAL CENTER - The mc.uky.edu server uses Awstats with info available here. Add an underscore (no spaces) and your college or department Web name to the end of the URL (examples: _medicine, _eye, _nursing) to view its numbers.

As in most cases where raw figures are presented you will need to sift through many to glean the ones most relevant to your situation.
