Website Layout and Content

The LSST:UK Wiki is divided into different 'spaces', to help people find the colleagues and materials that are relevant to them. All but the Home space can only be accessed using a user account. Some spaces are restricted-access and only accessible by users with specific responsibilities. The current list of spaces is as follows:

  • Home – this space, which is available without the need to login and holds topical, public information, plus links to useful resources.
  • LSST:UK Science Centre (requires login) – which holds material for the (PPRP-funded, Phase A) LUSC project team.
  • LSST:UK Executive Committee (restricted to Executive Committee) – which holds information specifically for the Executive Committee.
  • LSST:UK SWG (requires login) – which holds materials for the various science-working groups and science collaborations that LSST:UK engages with.
  • LSST:UK Board (restricted to Board Members, plus supporting roles (that is, Project Manager, Project Leader, and so on)).

 You can navigate to a site that is visible from you via the 'Spaces' pull-down menu at the top of most pages. If you do not have access to a space that you believe you should have access to, contact the LSST:UK Project Manager (George Beckett). Also do this, if you do have access to a space that you don't believe you should have access to.
