Perma creates a copy of the webpage exactly as it is today, and gives you a link that will always point to this content, no matter what happens in the future.

In this case our Perma link is created as: http://perma.cc/YN3R-AMT7.

When you visit that link in the future, you’ll always see the same content displayed.

Big thank you to LIPA for sharing space with Perma.cc and all your continuing support, see you all next year in Chicago!

New Version .52

Yesterday, Perma was upgraded to version .52, which includes a new greeting and signup page for libraries, improvements to archival playback, mirror logic refactoring, a new FAQ, fresh user Docs, and a faster admin console. Bravo!

The Perma Dev Team will continue to improve functionality and fix bugs, while the same easy archival features you have come to expect will always be available.

Swag at AALL

There will be Perma.cc stickers, Sharpies, and USB power supplies at our table at AALL, do come by and see us! Table 717, Sunday-Monday.

Perma.cc and The Bluebook

It is with great joy and fanfare that we announce the inclusion of Perma citations in the newest version The Bluebook!

Cross-posted from Et Seq., The Harvard Law School Library Blog:

http://etseq.law.harvard.edu/2015/06/20th-edition-of-the-bluebook-including-perma-cc/

“The 20th Edition of The Bluebook is now available and includes a new rule: 18.2.1(d), which states:

‘Archiving of Internet sources is encouraged, but only when a reliable archival tool is available.  For citations to Internet sources, append the archive URL to the full citation in brackets” – the rule includes the following example:

Letter from Rose M. Oswald Poels, President/CEO, Wis. Bankers Ass’n, to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Sec’y, SEC (Sept. 17, 2013), http://www.sec.gov/comments/s7-03-13/s70313-178.pdf http://perma.cc/B7Z7D9DJ].

Perma.cc is also the example used to demonstrate the archived sources rule in the Rule 18.1 Basic Citation Forms for Internet Sources table on page 178:

Rocio Gonzalez, Puerto Rico’s Status Debate Continues as Island Marks 61 Years as a Commonwealth, Huffington Post (July 25, 2013, 9:00 AM),http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/25/puerto-rico-status-debate_n_3651755.html http://perma.cc/C6UP-96HN].'”

A big thank you to everyone at The Bluebook for recognizing the problem of link rot and recommending Perma.cc as a reliable tool for stamping it out!

 

100 Registrars

The Perma.cc team is pleased to announce that we’ve added the 100th registrar to our perpetual archiving system!

With more courts, libraries, and schools participating everyday, Perma is growing faster than ever.

We’d like to recognize our 8 most active Registrars who are leading the way in archiving: Columbia, University of Texas, William & Mary, Boston College, Vanderbilt, Boston University, Northwestern, and Indiana — thank you for helping to stomp out link rot!

Perma.cc at AALL

Perma.cc will be at the upcoming American Association of Law Libraries annual meeting in Philadelphia, singing the gospel of perpetual content and rot-proof links.

We will be sharing a table with our friends at LIPA on Sunday and Monday, July 19 and 20. Be sure to find us for some great Perma swag at table 717!
