15. Global Feature Pages and Listings

Global Features are content items that can be displayed anywhere in any of the faculty websites. They are primarily displayed via Listing Modules that list and display Global Feature items according to the Tags assigned to the items.  These Tags are used to categorise the items based on things such as, type, subject matter, faculty, school, etc.

Currently there are four separate types of Global Features, these are: 

  • Facilities – used to feature facilities (libraries, labs, study spaces etc)
  • Person/Profiles – used to feature key people in a faculty, school etc.
  • Projects – used to feature research projects 
  • Research Disciplines – used to feature research disciplines
