We're taking a very brief hiatus from beta testing posts to share something we hope you will all appreciate. I'm not entirely sure how many times I type torontopubliclibrary.ca a day or the number of unique and interesting typo'd versions that have flown off my finger tips, but I'm sure you will agree it is a difficult string of text to pull off quickly and accurately.
So we've made a small and easy change to help all of us.
tpl.ca is now an alias for torontopubliclibrary.ca.
This means you can type:
- tpl.ca - for the home page
- tpl.ca/branches - for the locations & hours page
- tpl.ca/catalogue - for the current web catalogue
- tpl.ca/ramp - for the Teen site
- tpl.ca/kidsspace - for the Kids site
It's not fully implemented, so if you email us, you still have to type out the full torontopubliclibrary.ca in the email address. As well, not every sub-site is working yet (e.g. historicity.tpl.ca doesn't work yet). Over time, we'll work on expanding the alias to work more broadly, but we think you'll agree that this new shorter url access to our main website will make your TPL life (and ours!) a little easier.
