Thanks to Marlene Harmon, Reference Librarian, UC Berkeley School of Law Library, for this announcement. Please excuse the cross postings.
The problem of “link rot” in U.S. Supreme Court web citations is well known. The UC Berkeley School of Law Library has partnered with application developer Philip Ardery to address this problem by hosting U.S. Supreme Court Web Citations, a web service that captures snapshots of any web resource cited by the United States Supreme Court immediately after their opinions are issued. The goal of the service is to leverage current web and archiving technologies to minimize the link rot that complicates research as websites change or become unavailable over time.
We invite you to explore the tool and share it with your colleagues who may benefit from it. You can also subscribe to receive updates.
