The SGU Office of Information Technology maintains and administers web servers for use in electronic publications, e-Learning and for e-mail use by members of the SGU community. The SGU Community and the public at large should be able to access our servers at all times and should expect to see content presented clearly, attractively and consistently. In order to meet these needs, we ask that all information published or accessed via SGU servers comply with our Guidelines for Electronic Publications. The following are the minimum requirements for any and all information placed on any St. George's University web servers:
The content provider will designate a responsible party to maintain and administer each site. This responsible party is referred to as the “gatekeeper”. However, the SGU Webmaster retains final authority on assessing whether a gatekeeper has the necessary skills to comply with SGU’s Guidelines for Electronic Publications and other applicable University policies. If the provider cannot find a suitable gatekeeper for a particular website, the Webmaster will perform that function.
Adherence to Guidelines
All SGU electronic publications must adhere to the Guidelines for Electronic Publications.
The content provider's name and contact information must appear on all SGU web sites.
Individual Page Requirements
Each page must be of professional quality and provide value in both design and content;
Include the most recent modification time and date;
Include a link to SGU's official copyright policy;
Be no greater than 32K in size, excluding attachments.
Attachments should be under 250KB in size, preferably, and must not exceed 500KB. Attachments larger than 500KB must be broken up into smaller units.
The content provider will correct any erroneous or incorrect information in a timely manner and update information regularly.
Response to Questions
The provider must respond to readers’ questions promptly.
Make any requests for waivers of the Guidelines in writing to the SGU Webmaster.
Termination of Publishing Rights
Use of St. George's University web servers is a privilege and not a right. Our servers cannot include content which harms SGU's reputation or image or which does not adhere to its mission, policies, or website procedures. The SGU Webmaster may, at his or her discretion, suspend or terminate the assignment of the responsible gatekeeper. In such cases, the Webmaster will act as the gatekeeper of the affected site until a suitable replacement is assigned. The Webmaster also has the authority to reactivate a suspended gatekeeper’s assignment.
