404/File Not Found:
Link Rot, Legal Citation, and Projects
to Preserve Precedent

404 Link Rot Logo

On October 24, 2014, the library will host a symposium exploring the problem of link and reference rot.

The web is fluid and mutable, which creates challenges in the legal environment, where fixed content is necessary for legal writers to support their conclusions. Judges, attorneys, academics, and others using citations need systems and practices to preserve cited web content and to make it reliably available.

Entitled "404/File Not Found: Link Rot, Legal Citation and Projects to Preserve Precedent," the symposium will discuss these challenges and efforts currently underway to address the problem.

More information, including a schedule and other details, is available at
