Shortcut URLs

What are Shortcut URLs?

Many database URLs are long, complex and unstable. To avoid the problems associated with this, such as having to remember long and complicated URLs and creating bookmarks which don't work when the resource URL changes, we have created a series of "shortcut" URLs.

The shortcut URLs listed here take you directly to the required database while having the following advantages:

  • easy to remember
  • up to date
  • shorter than the actual URLs
  • stable

When should I use a shortcut URL?

Shortcut URLs should be used for,
  • Bookmarking
    To bookmark a link -
    PC users: right-click on the link and then select "Add Bookmark"
  • Creating links to databases
