Department Newsletter Submissions

Deadline for inclusion in the
December 2017 Newsletter:

Wednesday, November 29

You can make the Department Newsletter even more beautiful by following a few simple guidelines:

  1. Write about yourself in third person.
  2. Do not put quotes around your submission.
  3. Click "Submit" when you are finished typing and formatting your submission.

To control the formatting of your newsletter submissions, please utilize these simple formatting cues. Please note that this submission form will not make text bold or italicized in real time, but the text formatting will appear in the published newsletter.

Formatting Guidelines

Bold

Double asterisks around the text (or HTML <strong>...</strong> tags).
Ex: **Your text here** or <strong>Your text here</strong>

Italics

Single asterisks around the text (or HTML <em>...</em> tags).
Ex: *Your text here* or <em>Your text here</em>

Links

Curly brackets around the text and the full URL, including http:// (or HTML <a>...</a> tags).
Ex: {NET Nebraska http://www.netnebraska.org}

Use descriptive links.
Avoid non-descript phrases like "click here" OR "More at [link]". Links work best when the relevant name, title, or phrase (not the bare URL) is used to link to the webpage.

Descriptive Links (good) NET Nebraska featured Professor Binns on their All About Books program.
Bare URLs (bad) NET Nebraska (http://netnebraska.org) featured Professor Binns on their All About Books program. Listen here: http://netnebraska.org/basic-page/radio/all-about-books.
