Ohio State's Main Homepage
The New Media unit's main function within
University Relations is to be an advocate and
provider of content for visitors to Ohio State's
main web site. Feature stories running in the main
content area on osu.edu are coordinated through
Kristen Convery. E-mail Kristen if you have an idea
for a feature story, or want to learn more about the
process for selecting content for the site.
All offices and units are encouraged to reuse
any and all content featured on osu.edu. Please
contact Ted Hattemer to discuss easy ways for your

All units, colleges, offices, etc., are able to

organizations, units, and offices to post and promote
their events. Once your calendar account is activated,
you may post directly to http://www.osu.edu/events without any

Web Policy & Ohio State URLs
New Media manages the approval process of all
osu.edu URL requests. Working with the Web Policy
Committee, OIT's hostmaster, and designated IT
contacts around campus, shorter URLs are assigned
to help simplify a college, school, or unit's web
presence. All osu.edu requests can be made through
the request form at http://www.osu.edu/newmedia.
New Media mantains a presence on social media
web sites, including Facebook (facebook.com/osu)
and YouTube (youtube.com/osu).
Additionally, New Media is partnering with TELR,
Libraries, and OIT to launch a presence on Apple's
iTunes site. Videos, event information, and institutional
news are posted to these sites, along with photos
from the O-H-I-O campaign. O-H-I-O is the university's
successful marketing and social media interaction
initiative. Content from this site is now available as
XML and RSS for inclusion on your web site. Contact
Kristen to plan how to add O-H-I-O to your site.
