About Web Services
Web Services is a division of the Office of Public Relations and is responsible for the design and maintenance of the USA home pages on the University's main web server. For many people, the USA home page and its associated web pages are the first point of contact with the University. The quality of electronic information published by USA is important in maintaining the strong reputation and image of the University. Information on the USA home pages is subject to the same policies and standards as print publications. The USA Web Policies set minimal standards to ensure that information published electronically is accurate, visually appealing, clearly presented and follows the same high standards as other forms of published information about the University.
The Web Services team is responsible for the design and maintenance of the top-level web pages that provide general information about the University, index, directories, search engines, and menu pages with links to departmental or organizational unit pages. Web Services also designs and maintains web sites for other USA organizations. Web Services maintains the USA Web Server (www.southalabama.edu), a Sun computer using the Solaris (UNIX) operating system, that hosts many of the web sites of the University. Web Services also maintains www3.southalabama.edu, a Dell computer using the Windows 2003 operating system, that hosts secure web sites and web sites requiring Microsoft SQL Server.
