Link checking, the 404 problem (and the other 403) (Richard Cross, Nottingham Trent University)
How much time should libraries spend validating links from resource lists to electronic and online materials? How much effort should go in to validating copyright and quality assuring materials selected by academics from the web? This session will highlight some of the key issues raised by the business of 'link checking' at Nottingham Trent University, discuss the pros and cons of different assurance methods, and suggest some possible developments in the functionality of Aspire that could support and streamline this area of work.
