perma.cc Built & Run by Libraries

The 2015 winner of the Webby Award for best law website goes to Harvard Law School Library – Innovation Lab for the beta site perma.cc.

According to a study by Harvard Law, approximately 70% of all citation links published in law journals from 1999 to 2011 are now defunct.  perma.cc plans to prevent all future broken links in legal citation through perma.cc’s three step approach: create, vest, archive.

Create: A user enters a URL creating a Perma Link associated with a temporary archive.

Vest:  A Vesting User, someone affiliated with one or more Vesting Organizations such as law journals or courts, reviews and approves the Perma Link making the archive permanent.

Archive: An archive type is chosen (Live Page View, Screen Capture View, Archived Page View.
