Guidelines for Links

Locations may post links to other websites that are relevant to their mission or provide necessary service or information.

Reflect Catholic Teaching 

Make every effort to ensure that the resources linked on a Location website accurately reflect Catholic teaching. The authoritative sites for the Catholic Church include:

Include a Disclaimer

Links to external websites should include a statement of non-endorsement (a disclaimer). The disclaimer should also state that the person in charge retains the discretion to remove any link. See the Disclaimer for Links to Other Websites (sample).

Respect Copyrights and Trademarks

Insert only the link without any logo or icon. Using a logo or icon as well as the link requires permission from the site creators. Doing so without permission could be a copyright or trademark violation. See Prohibit​​ed Practices and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Copyright and Video Screening Policy.

Link directly to the relevant page of another website by using either a link or a thumbnail. Before linking, it’s best to ask permission from the linked site. For additional information on the correct method of linking, see Connecting to Other Websites from Stanford University Libraries.
