Library Basics

Go Shortcuts

Go shortcuts are an easy way to get you straight to a page or resource without having to follow a trail of links. For on campus the format is go/[insert shortcut]. Off-campus requires the longer shortcut url.  Safari user? Use the trailing slash with your Go links!

Below are some frequently used go links that you will find useful:
