go.tufts.edu is Tufts’ home-grown URL shortening service. Web content owners may create a Go Script or “nickname” to alias their sites.
A site with a long URL, such as example.tufts.edu/departments/all/science/birdstudy, might be Go-Scripted to go.tufts.edu/birds.
Site visitors who enter the shorter URL will automatically be directed to the longer one. This comes in especially handy when promoting a site in print and on X/Twitter.
Any site owner with a Tufts Username and password may login to create Go Scripts.
Note that in order to access the Go Script website, you need to either be on campus or be connected to the VPN.
