Implementation and Changes: A “master” taxonomy will be created and hosted on a central Arts & Sciences web server, on the Administrative Gateway site. All sites developed by the A&S web team after 7/1/2013 will use the taxonomy and provide rss feeds for news events using the prescribed vocabulary. We will publicize the taxonomy and encourage departmental implementation. Once a central system capable of collecting the rss feeds is in production (or imminent), the current A&S main site, ArtsUW.org, and Department Framework sites will convert to this taxonomy and provide feeds.
Any changes to the taxonomy will be discussed by the team before being executed.
