Services We Offer
Our services are free for all Emerson departments and offices. If you want to work with us to improve your website, read our Process page and fill out a form to get started. Once we have your information, we'll contact you to schedule a meeting. Timelines will vary depending on the scheduling of meetings, how quickly you can develop your content, and the size and scope of your project.
Any department in need of new web pages, content, advanced technical features, or design can fill out a project request form. Web Services will contact you within 48 hours to discuss the project and arrange an initial meeting.
Webpage Maintenance & Editing
Your department is responsible for updating and maintaining the content on your site (e.g., editing text, photos, calendar, news items, etc.). Each department and office at Emerson has at least one staff member who has access to Drupal, our content management system, and can edit departmental webpages. Please contact your department's Drupal user and/or refer to our Drupal editing manual for information on updating your website. If you are not trained in Drupal and would like to learn how to use it, please contact Jason Beals at email@example.com to arrange a training session.
Photos & Videos
We will ask you to provide the photos and videos for your section. We can provide student photographers and potentially videographers (depending on the projects demands and purpose). Please follow our Photo Guidelines and Video Guidelines before beginning the production process. Contact Deb Falzoi at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule
For any video production/editing that we cannot accommodate, contact TRF (Television, Radio, Film).
Social Media (Facebook, Twitter & Blogs)
Facebook, Twitter and departmental blogs are created and maintained by Web Services. If your department needs any of these platforms created or adjusted, fill out the social media form.
