Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
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 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.
Record the prefix plus telephone number. For example, 08 8226 6000 or 0417 123456.
Leave the field blank.
