INFORMATION RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IRM) SECTION
IRM are heading into peak period for the Handbook and Course Browser 2017 cycle so there may be slight delays with updating your requests. Please see table below for Turnaround times for Work Requests as a guide.
Please remember to use the IRM Work Request Form to submit work requests.
For general IRM requests, email firstname.lastname@example.org
For queries relating to Course Progression, email email@example.com.
IRM have put together a Newsletter Style Guidelines as a guide for updating Weekly reports located in the SA Weekly Reports Library in SharePoint.
We continue to ensure accessibility and readability of all our web pages to comply with the standards recommended by Vision Australia.
Always consider alternative text (alt text) for your images to describe what is happening in the image. If the image is purely decorative, an alternative text need not apply. The alt text should be a short description of what is happening in the picture. If there are any words in the image, these should also be included.
This is helpful for visitors to our web pages with vision impairment including colour vision deficiency. It is also useful for users who may not have access to high-speed internet or the latest technology so images may not display. An alt text will give all users equal access to information on our all our web pages.
If you are interested, you can test how images may look for those living with a colour vision deficiency at Coblis - Color Blindness Simulator.
