Web Standards Group

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The WSG is a campus-wide forum whose membership is drawn from Web developers, designers, and administrators across campus. It was formed in May 2005 with a twofold task: to recommend a set of Web guidelines and best practices that could be endorsed as standards for UCSB campus Web sites, and to develop a central campus resource for disseminating information on these guidelines, as well as other Web-related resources and tools. These guidelines and resources can be found in the UCSB Web Guide.

To receive notices of Web Standards Group meetings and training activities, subscribe to the UCSB-Web Mailing List.

If you want to start a discussion or connect with additional campus members please join and see the RACK discussion forums in GauchoSpace.

Current Web Standards Group co-chairs are Denise Saludares and Brian Wolf.

Most meetings are the first Tuesday of the month held at Kerr Hall, second floor. Agendas and meeting minutes are posted in Box.

In case you have not heard, there is a new tool called Siteimprove that has been purchased by the Office of the President for all members of the campus community to use. This tool provides a robust web crawler that will check your website for many items, including general accessibility problems, quality assurance (such as broken links and spelling), and tools to help you improve your search engine optimization (SEO). To learn what the Siteimprove tool can do for your site, please attend the Siteimprove Overview and Q & A. This workshop will be led by WSG co-chair, Brian Wolf.
