Often, the actual web address (or URL) can be quite long for a given page in the college's website. This makes it cumbersome to use in publications or to type it into a browser's address box. A shorter address (i.e., shortcut) can be assigned to such a web page to make it easier for people to visit the page and remember it. For example, the actual URL for the campus map is: http://psbehrend.psu.edu/sites/default/files/admissions-financial-aid/visit-behrend/CampusMap.pdf. The shortcut for the map is: http://behrend.psu.edu/campusmap.
If you would like to request a shortcut to one of your web pages, please complete this form. Requests take 1 to 3 days to process, so please be sure to build this into your schedule if this request is time-sensitive. After the shortcut has been approved and configured on the server, a member of the Web Team will contact you to let you know that the shortcut is ready to use.
If you have any questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
