  1. 1. Robust Links @mart1nkle1n IIPC WAC, 06/16/2017, London, UK Robust Links – A Proposed Solution to Reference Rot in Scholarly Communication Martin Klein @mart1nkle1n Herbert Van de Sompel @hvdsomp Research Library Los Alamos National Laboratory http://robustlinks.mementoweb.org/
  2. 2. Robust Links @mart1nkle1n IIPC WAC, 06/16/2017, London, UK 2 • Links break • Referenced content changes  Author’s intention with such links is not reproducible! Can we: 1. make links more robust? 2. actionable for humans and machines? Problem

  5. 5. Robust Links @mart1nkle1n IIPC WAC, 06/16/2017, London, UK 5 Robust Links 1. Create a snapshot of referenced resources in a public web archive
  6. 6. Robust Links @mart1nkle1n IIPC WAC, 06/16/2017, London, UK 6 Common Practice – Archived URI URI of archived snapshot https://web.archive.org/web/20071011083729/http://islandheritage.org/faq.html Capture datetime But what if URI-M is: http://archive.is/MTMKu or https://www.mummify.it/XbmcMfE3
  7. 7. Robust Links @mart1nkle1n IIPC WAC, 06/16/2017, London, UK 7 Robust Links 1. Create a snapshot of referenced resources in a publically available web archive 2. Decorate links with: • URI of archived snapshot • datetime of archiving • resource’s original URI Benefits: • Can visit live version of referenced resource • Original URI allows finding captures in all web archives • Capture datetime allows finding an appropriate capture in all web archives • Uniform, machine-actionable
