Single sources of truth provide content from the most accurate source, avoiding duplication of content, outdated or inaccurate information.
Examples of USNH single sources of truth

Content from these sources cannot be copied onto any other web pages but can be linked to or embedded within other pages instead. This includes the following:

Faculty and Staff Information
Key Faculty and Staff information for PSU and UNH Faculty and Staff should be pulled in from Banner (PSU, UNH) and myElements (UNH faculty). PSU and UNH Faculty and staff that are not in Banner should not be added to the website. Faculty are added to Banner during semesters when they teach and will be pulled in automatically at that time. More information regarding adding faculty and staff pages to websites can be found here.

UNH News Stories
Handshake is the career management system for USNH student internships on campus or in the community.

External fellowships and scholarships
The office that owns the content regarding external fellowships and scholarships is the single source of truth; websites should link to these offices.

Responsibility for digital content
College and school websites are maintained by members of the university community acting as official representatives of USNH. Site owners and editors are responsible for complying with all relevant laws, USNH policies and this standard.
ET&S Software Development reserves the right to remove at any time any content that it considers in violation of this standard or any other USNH policies.
If inappropriate or inaccurate content is discovered, ET&S will contact the site owner to discuss the issue. If the site or content owner cannot be contacted or is no longer at USNH, that content will be administered by ET&S and can be removed if deemed inaccurate or inappropriate. When content is obviously unacceptable, ET&S will immediately remove the content prior to contacting the site owner. Unacceptable entries also may cause site access to be suspended.
Reports regarding inappropriate content may be sent to ET&S Software Development.
