Research and laboratory websites are essential tools for the research community at USNH. Various website hosting services are available through USNH, depending on the data, the contributors, and the nature of the lab or research.
Purpose and audience
Research and laboratory websites serve as tools for publishing, sharing and collecting research information related to work being done at USNH. The audience for these sites is the USNH community, affiliated researchers and institutions, scientific communities and the general public.
Individual research or laboratories
If a website represents an individual's research or laboratory, then that website should be hosted at sites.usnh.edu or usnh.domains. Websites can have multiple USNH site editors for easier upkeep. Ongoing training is available for WordPress, and self service support for Domain of One's Own is available through the Domain of One’s Own Community Documentation.
University System research center or laboratory
If the website represents the work of a recognized research center or laboratory that will continue to exist regardless of the presence of any individual, then that website should be part of the appropriate entity’s website (e.g. college) to which it belongs. For more information or for interdisciplinary centers, please contact ET&S.
Special data representation needs
Special data handling, such as data management, gathering, or visualization can be supported by the Research Computing Center (RCC). To request a research website with special data representation needs, please contact RCC.
Researchers that require websites representing multiple institute research groups or consortiums can request a multi-institute site from the Research Computing Center.
For support or questions about research or lab sites, please contact ET&S.
Anyone working on a USNH website is welcome to attend the open walk-in training and help sessions that ET&S offers. For a schedule of the training sessions and walk-in times, see the Teaching & Learning Technologies training calendar.
Responsibility for content
Websites created by members of the USNH community acting as official representatives of the university system must comply with all relevant laws, USNH policies, and this standard. See specific standards for more information.
Although USNH ET&S does not monitor or regularly review website content, it reserves the right to remove any content that it considers to violate this standard or any other USNH policies.
If inappropriate or inaccurate content is discovered, ET&S will contact the 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 USNH site access to be suspended.
Reports regarding inappropriate content may be sent to ET&S.
