Purpose & Audience

University Branded Sites

The purpose of USNH websites is to provide USNH colleges, schools, departments, offices, services and other organizations with USNH-branded, USNH-affiliated websites on a university system server. USNH Enterprise Technology & Services (ET&S) offers site design, development, guidelines, training and ongoing support to set up and maintain USNH Drupal websites.

When you request a website, ET&S works with you through the whole process, from consultation, budgeting and planning to development and delivery and beyond, to ongoing support and maintenance. After consultation, if it’s determined that an outside vendor should create the site or application, ET&S will help you with that process.

To set up a USNH Drupal website, the following criteria must be met:

  • USNH staff or faculty must request/sponsor a site for a department or organization with demonstrated need.
  • Either no site currently exists where the material can be posted or a parent site exists under which the new site can be posted.
  • No existing site/application exists that covers the same material or offers the same functionality.

Personal Websites

Personal websites are created by members of the University community acting as individuals rather than as official representatives of the University of New Hampshire.  As such, this service is not to be used as the official website for any UNH college, school, institute, department, or administrative or service unit. 

Site owners may elect to grant editing and other content creation and management rights to any other individual with a USNH account. Site owners, however, will ultimately be responsible for the site and its contents. 

Authors of these pages are responsible for complying with all relevant laws, university policies, and this Standard.

Intranet Sites

Intranet sites are primarily designed for use by internal USNH audiences. They can help facilitate communication and collaboration between groups, and allowed shared access to documents and files. Links to intranet documents can be also be shared with external audiences.

Testing, security and compliance requirements

Content requirements

For information about adding and editing content in USNH websites, please refer to the Content guidelines.

Content Guidelines

Support

Sites@USNH, Domain of One's Own and Pressbooks are offered as self-service tools. For support needs please contact ET&S or attend a virtual walk-in session

Archiving

USNH Faculty & Staff sites are not archived. Individuals are responsible for backing up any website content that they post or remove. 

If no edits have been made to a Sites@USNH or Domain of One's Own website in a year, email notifications may be sent to the site owner. After notification, the owner will have 30 days to log into the site, or the site will be unpublished. Notification emails will be sent out prior to the site being unpublished. 

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.

Violations

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.
