Hopefully this can in part serve as a friendly reminder to check in on your website to make sure they are up to date. As the school year ends, there may be things that need to be refreshed or removed. Please remember that there should be no more than five years of records stored on the site.

If you are looking for a more intensive refresh of your website, feel free to reach out for us for a site review. We can help you with all sorts of things including adding new content on the site, cleaning up a site that is getting bogged down with out of date content, or re-working the structure of the site to better server your users. If you’d like some help or advice, please email webteam@uwsa.edu to schedule a meeting, or meet us at an upcoming Open Lab:

  • Next Tuesday May 23rd at 1:00 in Van Hise 1511
  • Wednesday May 31st at 2:00 in Regent 213
  • Wednesday June 7th at 10:00 in Van Hise 1511

Thank you for working with Ian on the file audits. It is important for us to not let documents that are no longer used to stay on the website. It helps keeps the cost of running the site under control and ensures people don’t find out of date documents accidentally.

For your information, the Web Team has started a review of the content of all of the websites, partly to just make sure we are aware of what is out there. We may reach out to you if we have any questions. We do expect it to take some time, and won’t be reaching out to every site, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t hear anything.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns you can always reach out to webteam@uwsa.edu or give Rachel a call at 263-2203. Please, send us any suggestions you have for improvements you’d like to see or ideas for new features.
