University Catalog Links - Best Practices

Prevent links from pointing to old versions of the University Catalog.

About the Catalog

The University Catalog serves a vital function to Chico State students by providing up-to-date course information. Old versions of the catalog are also available to students, so site maintainers must be careful to avoid links to outdated catalog content.

Linking to the Catalog – The Right Way

Prevent links from pointing to old versions of the University Catalog.

BAD Catalog link

https://catalog.csuchico.edu/viewer/15/MATH/SSCRCMTHCR.html

GOOD Catalog link

https://catalog.csuchico.edu/viewer/MATH/SSCRCMTHCR.html

If you remove the two-digit number indicating the catalog year, the link will automatically take users to the current catalog. This technique is considered best practice and is highly recommended, unless links point to archival catalog information.
