New websites hosted by Geisel

Sites hosted on the Geisel Web servers are built and maintained by us (Geisel Web) with all content provided by you.  We'll work with you to make sure the look and feel of the site accurately reflect your content.

While we are creating the site, and after the site goes live, you can continue to send content updates to Geisel.Webmaster@dartmouth.edu.  We can easily handle MS Office documents, PDF documents, and any image files you'd like to include in the content.  Since our sites use WordPress as the publishing platform, we can provide access and training for someone in your group if they would like to take on content editing duties.

If you have any sensitive or private information, we can restrict access to specific files or web folders either based on Dartmouth NetID authentication, or a simple username/password pair.

Generally, most things can be handled via email; however, we can meet at any time via video chat or over the phone, if you prefer.

The Geisel Web team provides training for programs/departments and labs that wish to make edits to their websites. You may request training by emailing Geisel.Webmaster@dartmouth.edu. We will work with you and/or your team by deciding on an ideal time. Once a time is established, a Zoom invite will be provided. This option is available as a refresher or for the new WordPress user.  Please read through and become familiar with the Website Policy.

Please read the detailed instructions to get started:

Feel free to contact us with any questions you have or if you need more information to get started with your new site.

Geisel Web – Getting Your Lab on the Web

Overview

Thanks for asking us to help you with creating and maintaining your web presence here at the Geisel School of Medicine. We are happy to build a web site for you and your lab which will be kept on our site – http://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu. Most lab sites will use your last name as its address, ex: http://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/leib/.

We typically have 4 sections to each site:

Research – A short introduction to your research interests

Publications – An auto-generated listing of your lab’s work from PubMed

Lab Members – Brief bio sketches and photos of your lab group.

Contact Us – Postal, phone, and email contact information, along with any special instructions for using those methods.

Additionally, some labs have requested additional sections to their sites, such as event listings, relevant links, photos of their work or of their lab activities, recruitment links (“join us”), and multimedia or other digital content that faculty have created.

Please look at some of these examples to get a feel for the sites we create:

We do not currently accept design documents for new sites - we design and code to a narrow specification to ensure continued maintainability. Because our sites use a common technology base, we are able to provide new features and functionality for ALL our sites as the Geisel School web progresses.

We do not currently offer hosting or maintenance for websites we do not create.

Getting Started

The best way to start your new site is to email us content for the four core sections.

Research - Please consider your research section to be no longer than one printed page, with additional pages available as needed. We try to keep your information organized to make it easy to find and to be easy to read – many times we can link to Word or PDF documents you have rather than including their entire text in the website.

If you have any high-resolution images of your research, we would be happy to include these throughout your site.

Publications – For your publications page we merely require the search string you use on PubMed to find your documents; we can feed it into our automated system and your page will always be up to date.

Lab Members – Please send high-resolution digital images of yourself and any other lab members you want on the site. We would like these photos large and not cropped – we will make sure they fit on the page and are scaled appropriately for the site. Group photos typically work better than individual photos for lab members.

Contact Us – We will need your postal, email, and phone information for this section. Please include any special instructions you want to be posted on the site regarding contacting you.

Once we have received your information, we will begin to create a draft website. The address for this site will be emailed to you when it is ready, and we can discuss changes you would like at this point as well as additional content areas you are interested in.

Background Graphics – We would like to use high-resolution imagery of your work for the background of your website. If you can provide us with a few images from your lab we can choose one that will work best within our design framework.  If you cannot provide this, we can find appropriate stock photography to illustrate your research.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you have or if you need more information to get started with your new site.

Geisel Web – Getting Your Program on the Web

Overview

Thanks for asking us to help you with creating and maintaining your web presence here at the Geisel School of Medicine. We are happy to build a website for you, which will be kept on our site – http://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu. Most sites will use your program name, or an acronym, as its address, ex: http://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/epidemiology or http://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/admissions.

We typically have 4 sections to each site:

About Us – A short introduction to your program interests (e.g. Mission statement, etc.)

Research/Program – More in-depth content describing who you are and what you do.

Members/Faculty/Staff – Brief bio sketches and photos of your group.

Contact Us – Postal, phone, and email contact information, along with any special instructions for using those methods.

Additionally, some have requested additional sections to their sites, such as event listings, relevant links, photos of their work or of their activities, recruitment links (“join us”), and multimedia or other digital content that faculty have created.

Getting Started

The best way to start your new site is to email us content for the four core sections.

About Us – For this section, you might consider a mission or core values statement, or a description of how the program developed.

Research/Program - Please include any current program activities, research, or other work.  This will most likely be where most of the content about your program resides. We try to keep your information organized to make it easy to find and to be easy to read – many times we can link to Word or PDF documents you have rather than including their entire text in the website.

Members/Faculty/Staff – Please send high-resolution digital images of any faculty, staff, or program members you want on the site. We would like these photos large and not cropped – we will make sure they fit on the page and are scaled appropriately for the site.

Contact Us – We will need your postal, email, and phone information for this section. Please include any special instructions you want to be posted on the site regarding contacting you.
