Supported Redirects

This site supports two types of HTML page redirects in order to help prior users find their content with the recent reorganization of this site.

If you know a person’s ORCID you can use /person/ORCID to get to their profile via a URL redirect. An example for ORCID 0000-0003-1647-1918 the URL would be https://feeds.library.caltech.edu/person/0000-0003-1647-1918 and this will redirect to https://feeds.library.caltech.edu/people/Newman-D-K.

If you know a group’s name then you can use /group/GROUP_NAME to get to the /groups/GROUP_ID holding the content. E.g. the group called “Keck Institute for Space Studies” you could use the URL https://feeds.library.caltech.edu/group/Keck Institute for Space Studies to get to https://feeds.library.caltech.edu/groups/Keck-Institute-for-Space-Studies.
