MySource allows authors to publish information from a central source to several locations by:
It's important to make use of central sources of information wherever available, rather than duplicate data across UWA websites and systems.
By linking to, or embedding, definitive content from authoritative sources you ensure that visitors to your site get up-to-date, official information.
When the information is updated at the source it updates on your site as well.
Cutting and pasting such information to your pages, or creating your own version of the content from scratch, not only wastes your time but also means that if you are unaware of changes in the original source your information will be out of date.
To check that your proposed new content does not duplicate or contradict existing information, use the UWA search function to look for existing content on other sites.
