Account Requests - Standards for Official UMaine Websites

The standards included in this document are intended to promote a consistent interface for those accessing information about the University of Maine via theĀ  Web. The document is not meant to impede the creativity of University of Maine information providers or address HTML authoring in detail.


Utilizing the Web at the University of Maine has two primary goals. The first is to present an informative and attractive site to prospective students via our approved template, which you see on this page. The second is to provide accurate information to the campus community. Each document on the University of Maine website is considered part of the university’s public presentation, and therefore should be edited with the same care and diligence one would apply to a printed publication. Each page linked to the University of Maine’s website must be accessible, contain accurate information, follow a clear and cohesive style, and be appropriate for the university. University Web publishers are responsible for the content of the pages they publish and are expected to abide by the highest standards of quality and responsibility.


Publishing on the Web should be taken as seriously as publishing in print. Therefore, please follow the checklist below when designing your website.
