  • Fun with Post-its®!


What to put on your home page l.jpg
What to put on your home page:

  • Basic information: name, title, affiliation, contact info

  • Your job description/duties

  • Links to your presentations/publications

  • A copy of your vita (a link to a Word document is fine)

  • A picture-give a human touch!

  • A summary of current professional interests

  • A *couple* of hobbies, personal details, and/or photos


What not to put on your web page l.jpg
What NOT to put on your web page:

  • Anything you wouldn’t want your mom to read/see

  • Anything you wouldn’t want your worst enemy to read/see

  • Too much personal information

  • Too much, period: quota=20 MB

  • Anything that violates UCDHSC-DDC web policies:

    • Any material, including images, that is not clearly in the public domain (unless you’ve received permission from the creator)

    • Anything illegal

    • Any means of personal commercial gain


Where to put your web page l.jpg
Where to put your web page:

  • Every UC Denver employee has personal web space available on the Carbon server

  • “Can’t we put them up with the Library’s web page?”

    • No; personal files should be separate since they’re maintained by you alone

  • “Hasn’t/isn’t Carbon gone/going away?”

    • Carbon IS eventually being retired

    • However, this personal space will be maintained elsewhere

    • Back up your files locally


But i don t know html l.jpg
But I don’t know HTML!

  • Nina will create some templates that use XHTML+CSS

    • You won’t have to know XHTML+CSS to use them!

  • Okay, so what the heck is XHTML+CSS?

    • eXtensible HyperText Markup Language

    • Cascading Style Sheets



Once it s up l.jpg
Once it’s up:

  • Add the URL to your business card next time you reorder; your URL will follow this pattern:

    • http://carbon.cudenver.edu/~nmchale

  • Have Nina add a link from the Library phone directory page

  • Put a note in Outlook to remind yourself every month to check and make sure it’s up to date.

    • Check for broken links

    • Check for outdated information

    • Add some new content

What you need before the January workshops:

  • Web editing software installed on your workstation

  • A connection to your personal space on the Carbon web server

  • An appropriate digital photo, if desired

Getting design ideas fun with post its l.jpg
Getting design ideas: Fun with Post-its®

  • Using about a dozen Post-its®, write down terms and concepts that describe you, your job, and the kinds of things you want to include on your web page

  • Arrange the terms in logical groups

  • Sketch a rough layout (horizontally) on a piece of 8.5x11 paper; what’s a logical layout for the information about you?
