Single sources of truth provide content from the most accurate source, avoiding duplication of content, outdated or inaccurate information.
Certain UNH websites and UNH-maintained external content have been designated as the single source of truth for university-wide information. When something is a single source of truth, its information cannot be copied onto any other web page. Websites must embed information from those sources or link to them.
Information from these UNH sites can be embedded on any UNH website, filtered to display only relevant information:
For help embedding information from these sources on your site, please contact Web and Mobile Development (WMD).
While not all website content is available for embedding, each school/college/ department/service/organization website is generally considered the single source of truth for that information.
For the topics listed below, please follow these guidelines:
For more information on building good links, please review the Links standard.
Handshake is the UNH career management system for student internships on campus or in the local community. Handshake should be the single source of truth for all external internships offered to UNH students. All external opportunities should only be posted on Handshake to avoid duplication and ensure accuracy and timeliness.
The UNH Fellowships Office is the single source of truth for all external scholarships and fellowships. To request that a fellowship be added, please contact the Fellowships Office.
UNH Scholarships is the single source for school-wide internal scholarships.
Always look to see if information is already provided somewhere else on the website by the “owner” of that information and link to it rather than copying it, if it makes sense.
External content can be embedded in a UNH website only if the creator of the material is UNH or from an organization with a recognized relationship, such as:
Google maps may also be embedded on a unh.edu website.
To request that other tools, services or information be embedded on a webpage, please contact WMD. The tool may need to have a security review.
Use the embed code provided by the external tools. I-frames are discouraged because they are not natively responsive and so are difficult to read on mobile devices.
For questions regarding single sources of truth and embedded content, please contact WMD.
Anyone working on a Drupal website is welcome to attend the open walk-in training and help sessions that Academic Technology offers. For a schedule of the training sessions and walk-in times, see the Academic Technology (AT) training calendar.
UNH.edu websites are maintained by members of the University community acting as official representatives of the University of New Hampshire. Editors are responsible for linking to content and creating embedded content as described in this standard. In addition, editors should review links on their websites at least twice a year to ensure that all links and embedded content are still active and available. Finally, editors are responsible for complying with all relevant laws and university policies.
Although UNH AT does not monitor or regularly review site content, it reserves the right to remove at any time any content that it considers to violate this standard or any other UNH policies.
If inappropriate or inaccurate content is submitted, UNH AT will contact the site owner to discuss the issue. If the site or content owner cannot be contacted or is no longer at UNH, that content will be administered by WMD and can be removed if deemed inaccurate or inappropriate. When content is obviously unacceptable, UNH WMD will immediately remove the content prior to contacting the site owner. Unacceptable entries also may cause unh.edu access to be suspended.
Reports regarding inappropriate content may be sent to UNH WMD.
