Setting Up Your Website
The Baylor College of Medicine website is divided into two content areas. The marketing group manages all healthcare sites. The Institutional Web Management group, working closely with web maintainers, manages department, center, labs, education, research and community sites. All Baylor sites are required to be developed in the College’s content management system and live on the Baylor enterprise server unless authorized by the Digital Governance Subcommittee. For more information see Content Management System and Server Requirements.
How to Get Started
- Develop your content using the appropriate content outline.
- Familiarize yourself with the Content Check List and the Web Style Guide.
- Submit the completed outline as an attachment to the Website Request Form.
- The web management group will set up your site.
- Questions about photos and images or video?
- Give yourself and the web team time to complete page reviews to meet your deadline.
All web materials, with the exception of Signature bios, receive a pre-publication review by a member of the Institutional Web Management team. The team works to ensure Baylor’s website is presented in the most professional and appropriate way.
The Institutional Web Management team reviews submissions for clarity, AP style and naming standards. Additionally the team works to help identify improvements in content and design enhancements for sites.
Every effort is made to provide a quick turnaround. If a page is submitted for review before 4 p.m. each day, it is the goal of Institutional Web Management to review by the end of the day. New sites can take three to five days to review depending on the complexity of the site.
