Two components to the link/reference rot 
challenge: 
• Link rot: Links stop working aka 404 
Not Found 
• Content drift: Referenced content 
changes over time

Pockets of Persistence 
Herbert Van de Sompel 
How to achieve the ability to: 
404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014 
• Persistently 
• Precisely 
• Seamlessly 
revisit the Web of the Past 
and the Web of the Now at 
some point in the Future 
This challenge exists for the entire web, 
but some communities actually care 
about addressing it: 
• scholarly communication, 
• legal publications, 
• journalism, 
• Wikipedia, 
• … 
Mobilize the communities that care about 
this problem to work towards joint, 
interoperable solutions, approaches
Addressing the Link/Reference Rot Challenge 
• Pockets of Persistence 
• Capture – Archive Pro-Actively, Selectively 
• Reference – Annotate Links 
• Access – Travel in Time 
Herbert Van de Sompel 
404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014
Pro-Active Capture for a Seed Collection 
• Seed Collection - Starting point for capture is a seed collection of 
interest to communities that care, e.g. 
o On-Line journalism 
• Lifecycle Events – Intervene at critical moments in the lifecycle of 
items in these collections to pro-actively capture 
o Collection items – some solutions in place 
o Web resources referenced in collection items 
Herbert Van de Sompel 
o Scholarly literature 
o Legal documents 
o Wikipedia articles 
404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014
Pro-Active Capture for Seed Collection 
• What those crucial lifecycle events are may depend on the 
• Creation of new article 
• Creation of new version of 
article 
• Creation of substantially 
new version of article 
• Addition of external 
reference to article 
• References to article 
exceed a certain threshold

Pro-Active Capture for Seed Collection 
• Interoperability for on-demand capture: 
o Need basic interoperability for machine-driven on-demand 
capture: 
- Discovery of capture interface 
- Interface IN - [ Original URI ] 
- Interface OUT - [ URI of Capture ; Capture Datetime ]

• Access – Travel in Time

Reference Captures and Annotate Links 
• Existing practice for linking to captures: 
o Link to URI of Capture 
o Lose Capture Datetime 
• Problems with existing practice: 
o Impossible to visit the original URI, if desired 
o Requires the permanent existence/uptime of the archive that 
holds the capture 
- One link rot problem replaced by another 
Van de Sompel, H. et al. (2013) Thoughts on referencing, linking, reference rot

Using Capture URI to find Captures in Other Web Archives? 
Herbert Van de Sompel 
404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014
Reference Captures and Annotate Links 
• Desired practice for linking to captures is to annotate the link so it 
Herbert Van de Sompel 
404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014 
conveys: 
- URI of Capture 
- Original URI 
- Capture Datetime 
• Link annotation supports fallback to other archives: 
o Original URI allows finding captures in all web archives 
o Capture Datetime allows finding an appropriate capture in all 
web archives 
o Original URI and Capture Datetime allows automatic access 
to an appropriate capture in all web archives (see Access)

Reference Captures and Annotate Links

Herbert Van de Sompel

conveys: 
URI of Capture 
Original URI Capture Datetime
Reference Captures and Annotate Links 
• Interoperability for link annotation: 
o Need an approach to convey, in a uniform, machine-actionable 
- URI of Capture 
- Original URI 
- Capture Datetime

• Interoperability for time travel: 
o Memento protocol specifies interoperability across web 
archives, version management systems 
o Memento protocol is supported by major web archives 
o Need to work towards Memento support by version 
management systems 
o Need to work towards making Memento experience 
seamless through native browser support 
o Need to work towards robustness and sustainability of 
Memento infrastructure

Conclusion 
• Significant technical solutions, infrastructure, ideas exist to 
address the link rot/reference rot challenge 
• Mobilize the communities that care about this challenge to work 
towards joint, interoperable approaches

  • 13. Pro-Active Capture for a Seed Collection • Seed Collection - Starting point for capture is a seed collection of interest to communities that care, e.g. o On-Line journalism • Lifecycle Events – Intervene at critical moments in the lifecycle of items in these collections to pro-actively capture o Collection items – some solutions in place o Web resources referenced in collection items Herbert Van de Sompel o Scholarly literature o Legal documents o Wikipedia articles 404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014
  • 14. Pro-Active Capture for Seed Collection • What those crucial lifecycle events are may depend on the • Creation of new article • Creation of new version of article • Creation of substantially new version of article • Addition of external reference to article • References to article exceed a certain threshold Scholarly Literature Herbert Van de Sompel collection type Wikipedia 404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014

  • 18. Pro-Active Capture for Seed Collection • Interoperability for on-demand capture: o Need basic interoperability for machine-driven on-demand capture: - Discovery of capture interface - Interface IN - [ Original URI ] - Interface OUT - [ URI of Capture ; Capture Datetime ] Herbert Van de Sompel 404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014

  • 20. Reference Captures and Annotate Links • Existing practice for linking to captures: o Link to URI of Capture o Lose Capture Datetime • Problems with existing practice: o Impossible to visit the original URI, if desired o Requires the permanent existence/uptime of the archive that holds the capture - One link rot problem replaced by another Van de Sompel, H. et al.

  • 28. Reference Captures and Annotate Links • Desired practice for linking to captures is to annotate the link so it Herbert Van de Sompel 404/File Not Found, Washington, DC, October 24 2014 conveys: - URI of Capture - Original URI - Capture Datetime • Link annotation supports fallback to other archives: o Original URI allows finding captures in all web archives o Capture Datetime allows finding an appropriate capture in all web archives o Original URI and Capture Datetime allows automatic access to an appropriate capture in all web archives (see Access) Van de Sompel, H. et al. (2013) Thoughts on referencing, linking, reference rot http://mementoweb.org/missing-link/
