Department of Chemistry Internal Pages


Communications and Web Team

The Communications and Web team have overall responsibility for all content on the department web pages.  As part of this remit, we provide training for department members who manage the content of particular website sections. We use the Drupal content management system for our web pages and adhere to the overall look and feel of the University of Cambridge Project Light template.

The department website is composed of many ‘microsites’ which can all be individually edited.  Examples include the Library, Human Resources and Teaching microsites. We provide training for all microsites, including Research Group pages which use the department template (see, eg, the Vignolini Research Group microsite). Some research groups choose to create and run their own websites. We cannot offer training for sites such as these, which are not hosted by the department.

If you ever have any questions about departmental website content, or would like to request a new feature or website section, please contact one of us in the first instance.  If we can’t deal with your request, we can direct you to the correct channel.
