eScholarship Support will be unavailable Thursday Nov. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020

Offer a URL-shortener for eScholarship content

It would be great if there was a shortened url associated with each paper hosted on escholarship. It would be useful for sharing more easily in presentations, etc. For example,
something like: es.org/3qs8f8qx

At the moment we do that manually using bit.ly, which isn't very efficient, and doesn't make a whole pile of sense (as there's no guarantee bit.ly will be around forever).

Thanks!

Paul

The eSchol.org URL shortener has been released!

You can now shorten the length of any eScholarship item or landing page URL following the guidance available in our Help Center:
https://help.escholarship.org/support/solutions/articles/9000177383


Please note that while short URLs currently have to be created manually using the guidance in the article linked above, we will be adding them to Share menus throughout the platform in the near future.

Thanks for the suggestion! We are going to add this to our 2019/2020 roadmap, and will post updates here when the feature is available.
