3.4 - PDFs

Policy

Do not use or link to PDFs unless absolutely necessary.

Standard

HTML is the preferred method for web content. You should only use PDFs when there is no other way to post the content on the web. All PDFs posted on departmental sites must include the official departmental logo provided by Marketing Communications and a creation and/or update date.

Guideline

PDFs should be accessible and include the creation date. Information about creating accessible PDFs can be found on the WebAIM site @ http://webaim.org/techniques/acrobat/
