Persistent Links

Broken links often frustrate the exploration of digital content. Persistent links provide a mechanism for ensuring that links to digital content will continue to resolve and provide access to digital content even if the location of the content should change over time. This is done through a service that generates a unique URL and registers a storage location associated to that URL. If the storage location should move, managers register the new location and the service will continue to resolve the initial URL to the new location.
