Blogs

From Wikipedia: A blog is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images and links to other blogs, web pages and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual.

The "closest resource" doctrine applies in establishing a blog:

1. Student Affairs Resources

Much of the blog functionality, including publishing, subscribing and archiving of textual content can be achieved on the Division of Student Affairs website.

Blogs hosted here will be fully-integrated into the website for the department, program, or group, including site navigation and searching.

Additional blog functionality may be introduced as demand warrants.

2. University Resources

If commenting is required, blog.case.edu provides full blogging functionality. The IT group will assist in developing a template for the content consistent with the branding for the Division of Student Affairs site.

3. Partner Resources

Not available.

4. Other Resources

Not required or permitted.
