Thread Web Citations

To talk about librarianship in this day and age requires a great deal of citing the web and Internet-accessible resources. This of course poses a challenge to librarians and scholars alike as we seek to accurately (or at least credibly) preserve memory and help create new knowledge. To that end, I present table 1 as one means of battling the link rot so rampant in today’s conversations.

The list is a simple column of the original footnote number and an archival version of that page archived at WebCite (http://www. webcitation.org/), a service of a consortium of publishers seeking to bring some permanence to web citations. Please note that not all pages are equally well archived, and some URLs in the Atlas were not archived at all (due to limitations set by the page authors). A lot of the archived pages retain the original content but definitely miss the look and feel of the original. Still, it is a start and a nice challenge to librarians to do better. Why not just put the archived URL in the footnotes? I think the original URL contains a lot of information folks use to make credibility decisions, and so the originals are retained for readability.
