Description of Posting to Portal Public Space.

To post content to the Library, Training, Links, or Help folders, your content must be placed into a folder for review by portal editorial staff.

Content is member-generated information like web pages, links to web resources, files, images, and flashmovies.

The folder is named:

  • Public Draft: Pending Publication Folder

There are four instances of this folder, one each located in:

  • The library folder.
  • The training folder.
  • The links folder.
  • The help folder.

Content placed in these folders will then be reviewed and published or rejected by portal editorial librarian staff, which will assist with “appropriate placement” of content for easy access by portal visitors.

Submitting Content for Publication

To submit content for review and publication into the portal Library, Training, Links, or Help folders:

1. Place your content in the Public Draft: Pending Publication Folder of the library, training, links, or help areas of the portal.

2. You content must have a title and description conforming to portal standards:

  • Title: best identifies the content in a clear, concise, and grammatically correct way.
  • Description: a keyword rich abstract describing the content.

3. Make sure you have properly identified ownership of the content. Click on the content's properties tab, and select all that apply:

  1. Contributors: The names of people that have contributed to this item.
  2. Creators: Persons responsible for creating the content of this item.
  3. Copyrights: The copyright on the item if appropriate and known. For procedures on how best to label content or compose a description see the section on Copyright and Fair Use

4. A portal librarian will review your content and if approved, place it into an appropriate folder. You will be notified by email when the content has been posted or if there are questions. You will also be sent the exact place where the content has been posted (URL address on the RM Portal). You will then be able to "link" to your content that you shared in the Portal Public Space.
