Internal vs External Links

In general, if a web page is generated by the KUMC Content Management System, link to the page as an Internal Link, referencing the page by its xID. Most sites are in the www publishing target, and have a full path URL on the www.kumc.edu domain.

The following sites are exceptions and should ALWAYS be linked to via their domain names, rather than their xIDs.

  • University of Kansas Alzheimer's Disease Center
    http://www.kualzheimers.org
  • Community Health Center Executive Fellowship
    http://www.chcexecfellow.com/
  • Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater Kansas City
    http://www.cmnkc.org/
  • Dykes Library
    http://library.kumc.edu
  • HITS: Health Information Technology Scholars Program
    http://www.hits-colab.org/
  • Institute for Neurological Discoveries
    http://www.indkc.org/
  • Laboratory Animal Resources
    http://lar.kumc.edu
  • Midwest Cancer Alliance
    http://www.midwestcanceralliance.org/
  • Project Eagle
    http://www.projecteagle.org/
  • KU School of Nursing
    http://nursing.kumc.edu
  • Student Research Forum
    http://srf.kumc.edu/
  • KU School of Medicine–Wichita
    http://wichita.kumc.edu

If your site in one of the above domains (not www.kumc.edu), and you are linking to a page within the www publishing target, select external link and include the full path to the URL. Generally, linking to the xID is best (e.g. http://www.kumc.edu/x119.xml if you are linking to the Anatomy and Cell Biology home page).
