Edit personal page
This is a short guide how to edit your personal page.
What is a personal page?
All NanoLundians within Lund University are presented with a “personal page” on the NanoLund website. Your personal page displays your contact information from LUCAT, your publications from Lund University Research Portal, and some information filled in by the Webmaster.
We would like you to add a personal profile picture, and some information about you and your roles within NanoLund, your research and/or education.
If you already have a personal page somewhere else, we would still appreciate a very short description in which you may include a link to your existing webpage.
If you would like to have additional pages to present your research activities please send an email to webmaster [at] nano [dot] lu [dot] se.
Before you start!
Just a few words about Accessibility
All websites need to follow legal requirements concerning accessibility for all users, regardless of disabilities.This is good, not only for people using screen readers and other assistive technologies, but also for mobile phone users and search engines.
To make your page accessible follow these simple rules:
Text: Write in a structures style: (1) most important information first (2) use headings and paragraphs to structure your content.
Pictures need to have: (1) high contrast/sharpness and (2) always an alternative text that describes what is seen. In order to be displayed sharply, images should be at least 1500 pixels wide.
Hyperlinks need to be understandable out of context. The reason is that screen readers often pull up a list with all links on that page. Then the link text needs to make sense. An example of a good hyperlink text is:
