Online Communications Policy
LSU Website Registry
All official units publishing information online must be registered with the LSU Web Working Group through the "LSU Website Registry." Affiliated and unofficial units may also register, however, registration is not required.
The following information must be provided each time a unit creates a new website, changes the URL of an existing website, or has web site personal changes:
- URL (new web site or updated URL)
- If the web site is new, provide the purpose of the site
- Unit responsible for maintenance
- site webmaster and/or content manager, include e-mail and telephone
- contact person (other than webmaster), include e-mail, telephone
- if a student organization is registering, please include contact information for the faculty advisor.
E-mail this information to the Web Working Group via Public Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Linking to from lsu.edu to unit web sites
When the Web Working Group is notified via the LSU web registry of a new or changed URL for an Official website, a link to the website will be established on LSU.EDU where appropriate, provided that all University policies and procedures have been adhered to. If a link cannot be established the unit webmaster and contact person will be notified.
When the Web Working Group receives a notice to establish a link to an affiliated or unofficial website, the appropriate campus unit will be notified of the link request, provided that the "Standard Disclaimer for Affiliated and Unofficial Websites" appears on the homepage.
Information about other unit web sites
By keeping the Web Working Group informed about your unit's website and providing up-to-date contact information, you will also be keeping your own unit informed. The Web Working Group will send notifications to all registered web contacts when information affecting linkage, standards and policies is modified.
