Publication URLs allow departments to publish shorter URLs to their key pages in print. You can request a publication URL for any page where the full URL will be problematic due to space (such as on a business card) or helping the user remember the URL (such as on a poster). Every page shouldn't have a publication URL, as they require time and resources to create and manage.
You can see a list of known publication URLs in the Resources section of the Web Site Guide. Check to see if there's already a short URL for your page before requesting a new one. Note that a publication URL typically shortens the address to just www.pugetsound.edu and a single level after the slash, such as www.pugetsound.edu/websiteguide versus the full URL of www.pugetsound.edu/about/offices--services/office-of-communications/web-site-guide/.
Some notes about requesting publication URLs:
To request a publication URL for your page, send an e-mail message to the Web Manager with the short URL you would like and the corresponding full page URL:
Please create a publication URL of www.pugetsound.edu/websiteguide for the page http://www.pugetsound.edu/about/offices--services/office-of-communications/web-site-guide/. Thanks.
