Departmental Web Hosting

LSIT supports several different options for Letters & Science departmental web pages:

Departmental Site in a Web Share

  • Departments can use their top level web share to host their web site.
  • Create the site using static HTML, or install and use a content management tool (see below).
  • Creation and maintenance of the site is the responsibility of the department (LSIT ensures the reliability of the server and hosting services, but does not create or maintain the site).
  • All content management systems require regular security upgrades, so the department must have an explicit plan to maintain the security of their site. We are required by campus policy to shut down any site that is vulnerable to security compromise.

Please see our Web Shares page for more information.

LSIT Content Management Platform

LSIT now provides a departmental website service that can be customized for your department. Using the Drupal content management platform, and starting with a common set of departmental website features (such as Directory, News, etc.), departments can design and maintain a website without needing any specialized web development expertise.

Customization is focused on visual appearance of the site and the structural layout of navigation/menus. Consultation is required to determine if this service will fit your specific needs. Consultation, site development, user training, and continuing support for this service are available via the LSIT Helpdesk. Please see below for more information.

Drupal Platform Service

We've paired Drupal's database-driven approach with a specialized "Platform". This allows a department to focus on site content, and provides a no-cost solution for the burden of system-side updates. Site-Support is provided through the LSIT Helpdesk.

The Platform is a group of specialized forms that allow designated individuals to create/edit content using a "Word-like" approach.  This means that while knowing HTML can be handy, it's not required to keep information up-to-date on the main Department website.  Editors can securely log in to the site using any modern webbrowser with their existing LSIT login/password.

Each department can have their own customized look, while maintaining a connection to the University.

Please Contact the Helpdesk if you would like to schedule a meeting.
