Lane Web Guidelines
The Lane Community College website (www.lanecc.edu) is currently undergoing a significant redesign. As part of this redesign, pages are being moved from using Adobe Contribute as an editor to using Drupal, which is an open source content management system (CMS), using a two track model.
One track of this process which was completed and implemented in late March 2013, involved working with end users to redevelop our look and feel, as well as a new information architecture.
The other track involves migrating the content into the CMS. The migrations are almost done and should be completed by mid May 2013.
You can follow the redesign process on the Lane Web Team Blog.
Our website is defined as any page administered under the organizational structure of Lane, regardless of funding source or server location. Pages that can and should be included on Lane's website are for any activity administered under the organizational structure of Lane and consistent with our mission. Lane is liable for any material on its site.
Our website domain, www.lanecc.edu, is visited just under five million times every year, and on busy days is seen by as many as 30,000 unique visitors. The standards found in this guide help maintain the quality of content found on our website, improve usability, as well as increase accessibility for all visitors. We also want to help avoid duplication or inconsistencies in information and to ensure that department heads and web editors are aware of basic guidelines.
Each department head, committee, or project group has responsibility for the accessibility, content, formatting, and functionality of their web pages created/maintained by their assigned staff on Lane's site. For each department, an "editor," someone who's received Drupal training through IT to maintain pages, is identified. With the supervision of the department head, the web editor has access to update and maintain their web pages.
