This week we are excited to announce the release of a long awaited Perma.cc feature: Batch Link Creation! Now, you can prevent link rot and citation drift en masse.
Before, your links were stowed away safely to be preserved for future use, but only one at a time. Now, you can create multiple Perma Links for your article, book, or briefing in one easy step. When you visit Perma.cc, select “Create Multiple Links” before you start.
Then simply collect the urls of the sites you want to capture and copy / paste them into the new upload portal:
The batch of Perma Links will be created and added to the folder of your choice, where you can treat them as individual records.
Here’s a good tip: if you use a citation creation tool like Zotero, you can export your chosen links into a .csv file (instructions here) and simply copy, paste, and preserve.
This feature is available to all Perma account holders but beware free account holders, those ten links per month might go faster than you were expecting. If you’re interested in learning more about our membership options for more frequent users give us a shout at info at perma.cc.
We’re always working to improve Perma. If you’re curious, all of our code is open source and available on Github and we have an API for developers.
