Workers' Memorial Day

Web toolkit update

The web toolkit is a set of guidelines and assets to apply to your existing and new websites to help create consistency across the University. An update has been made to the assets to include Dreamweaver CS3 design view compatibility. This is web toolkit version 1.1 and has been produced in response to feedback.

We are also working to improve the guidelines after further feedback, creating a glossary, an FAQ section and clearer information about which parts are key to keeping the design consistent. This will be added to the website in early May.

If you wish to be added to a web toolkit update email list, please contact
