Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

Multiple electronic communication addresses (for example, multiple phone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail) may be recorded as required. Each instance should have an appropriate Electronic communication medium and usage code assigned.

Universal Resource Locator (URL)

One form of electronic address used as a locator for an internet-based web site.

Example: http://www.aihw.gov.au This is the full address, however, it is not essential to record 'http://www' as the commonly used internet browsers assume these characters are included. Therefore, the URL address could be recorded as 'aihw.gov.au'.

Email addresses

Email addresses are a combination of a username and an internet domain name (URL) joined by an @ symbol. The use of the full URL is not valid in an email address.

Example: myuserid@bigpond.net.au

Telephone numbers

Record the prefix plus telephone number. For example, 08 8226 6000 or 0417 123456.
Do not record punctuation in telephone numbers. For example, (08) 8226 6000 or 08-8226 6000 would not be correct.
Unknown contact details

Leave the field blank.
