Web publishing and social media

Tools for web publishing

Within Lund University, many different web publishing tools, blog tools and other solutions are used to share information over the internet. For information on what systems are in use at your faculty/department, contact your SamWeb representative, listed on this page.

Web coordination – SamWeb

Common web issues at Lund University are dealt with in SamWeb, a coordinating group set up by the head of the University administration. The aim of SamWeb is to bring about clearer collaboration and a shared goal for the web activities at Lund University. The group consists of representatives from the faculties, Corporate Communications, the library organisation and the University’s specialised centres.

University-wide web solution

The University-wide web solution in Drupal is centrally financed and offered to all units within the University.

The web solution includes

  • an empty website, with basic functionality and designed according to Lund University design templates, ready to be filled with content.
  • training in the use of the Drupal tool.
  • support and user assistance.
  • a technical platform which is regularly updated to ensure operational and IT security, and continuously developed to offer an attractive long-term solution
  • the opportunity to submit requests for further development of the tool

If your organisation is interested in using the University-wide web solution, you can register an expression of interest in a website. You will then be contacted by Web Communications.

User support and assistance

If you are a website manager or publisher with a website in the University-wide web solution in Drupal, assistance and support are available in the quick guide, which is continuously updated.

In case of problems with one of the University’s websites, please contact the Service Desk via email servicedesk [at] lu.se or telephone +46 46 222 90 00. Always state the web address (URL) for the page concerned.

Graphic design and templates for websites

SamWeb has created a number of different templates for websites that are part of Lund University. The templates are in an HTML format and can be downloaded through Lund University’s Image and Media Bank.

The websites that become part of the University-wide web solution in Drupal are automatically adapted to the web templates. Organisations that have their own online publication systems, and are thereby individually responsible for implementing the graphic design, are also responsible for implementing the web templates in each system.

If you are unsure of what templates are available, or if you have questions about how to use the graphic profile online, please contact your faculty representative in the SamWeb network, or Maria Wendel at the Branding Office, maria.wendel [at] kommunikation.lu.se

Engaging external web agencies

If you need to create a form for which there is no template, for example for some sort of campaign, you can receive help from one of the University’s procured web agencies.

Blogs, newsletters and guide to social media

Blogs

The simple definition of a blog would be a website that mainly contains periodically published posts, organised so that the most recent entries are shown at the top. Within the University, there are a number of ways to use a blog.

Guide to social media

Lund University’s guide to social media contains advice and tools for using social media in the context of your work. For example, you can find tips on how to create good content for each channel, templates for presentation texts and recommendations for profile texts and user names. The guide also includes basic information on legislation, archiving and weeding of content and a list of the existing social media channels within Lund University – if you are responsible for a channel, you must add it to the list. The guide is in a wiki format and is a living document which is continuously updated.
