Web Style Guide

The objective of this guide is to promote and support the effort to create a consistent presentation and navigation across Siena College media. This guide will assist content managers/editors in their web publishing efforts and assure that Siena’s presence in this global medium will reflect the same high quality standards as other official publications of the College.

The following information must be read and implemented by all Siena departments, units, organizations, and all content owners/managers/editors posting to the siena.edu domain. Failure to adhere to the style guide may ultimately result in removal of the page from the site.

The College Webmaster will notify content managers in the event that a page is not in compliance with the web guide and will work with the department or individual to rectify all non-compliance issues. If, following notification, steps are not taken to redress guideline infractions; a request will be made to the appropriate Vice President to enforce the guidelines. As a last resort, the Web Advisory Committee (WAC) or Information Technology Services (ITS) reserve the right to remove a page and/or its links from the web site/server.

Pages using third party applications must comply with the Siena College Web Style Guide to the greatest extent possible. Content managers/editors are responsible for maintaining their own pages. The College Webmaster will not edit another department’s web page unless specifically requested to do so by the page owner or by the authorization of the appropriate Vice President.
