  • Add links to webpages such as your personal website, department profile, Wikipedia page, or social media accounts such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+, and others. You may reorder the list as you wish. Trusted parties can also add/update this information.

  • Each website entry must include data in both the Description and URL boxes:

    • Description: The text displayed on your record to designate the link; this should be kept brief.

    • URL: The full URL of the website. It must include a valid domain (i.e. no underscores).

  • The URL will automatically be displayed in the Description box if a description is not included.

  • You may add an unlimited number of websites, but each must have a unique URL. Websites with the same URL as a previously added website will not be saved.
