About WebTools

WebTools is an online resource for California state agency webmasters that helps support the efforts of implementing standards, functionality and look and feel into agency websites. Specifically, WebTools provides necessary tools, resources, and implementation guidelines for webmasters to implement  state standards for usability, accessibility, and separation of presentation.

The structure of WebTools is designed to approach solutions from multiple angles and from a variety of user perspectives. Webmasters can follow the phased approach (Web Development) where they will be provided general step-by-step information throughout the development lifecycle or they can find information and resources by specific category and topic.

This website is managed by the eServices Program, which is a part of the Web Consulting Unit at the California Department of Technology, Office of Technology Services.
