More on Linkrot

Further to an earlier post I made on SLAW on the topic of linkrot [1] (i.e., the problem of references in scholarly publications to websites that no longer have valid URLs), the current edition of the Law Library Journal [2] from the American Association of Law Libraries [3] also has a nice article on the topic of linkrot – see:

Susan Lyons, “Persistent Identification of Electronic Documents and the Future of Footnotes [4]” (2005) 97(4) Law Lib. J. 681 [available in full-text, PDF, 14 pages].
