The following is intended to provide basic guidelines, policies, and information for SOEST employees and students posting web documents to the SOEST web server.
Mission of the SOEST Web Site
The SOEST web pages:
SOEST Web Organization
SOEST has three levels of web page listing:
In general, hosting locations of new web sites on the SOEST server are set by RCF policy to be within the server directory of the primary unit of the person responsible for the site. Requests for exemption should be addressed to the SOEST Web Committee".
For Levels 1 and 2 contact information see Table below; for level 3 contact initials directly or see table below.
The SOEST web server is available to all active faculty, staff and students for the posting of information and content that is directly related to the activities within SOEST. It is there for users to post information to, so please use it.
Please bear in mind that it is each person's responsibility to ensure that their page(s) adhere to the minimal guidelines and requirements outlined elsewhere and in this document, that pages are kept current, and that pages portray SOEST in a positive manner.
By its nature, the world-wide web is designed to support the free exchange of ideas and information between internet users worldwide. All directories and files on SOEST network computers that are accessible for dissemination by our server should be readable by all, but writeable only by the author (or their "group"). Please see Instructions on using UNIX CHMOD for a description of what file and directory permissions are, and how to set them properly. Each person in SOEST is responsible for helping to keep our site functioning properly and safely in as much as they can control and properly set the permissions for the files and directories they own.
Non-SOEST-level pages will be linked primarily by the research / teaching unit to which an individual is attached. SOEST-level pages and / or major new additions to the SOEST server should be brought to the attention of
Who “Runs” and Manages the SOEST Web Server
The day-to-day operations of our server are overseen and maintained by the Research Computer Facility (RCF). RCF is advised by the SOEST Web Committee, which consists of faculty, students, and staff of our school, and is chaired by Ken Rubin. The SOEST web site is maintained primarily through the combined efforts of the following persons:
Defunct Web Pages (aka “cobweb pages”)
Old legacy web pages and sites, which have not been updated in 12 months and have no active webmaster or contact person will be considered defunct and removed from the server. They will be retained for a period of time for possible use or reuse of content.
