I don't have a ton of confidence that the service will necessarily exist in five years, or at least, that it will exist in a way that won't break all the links. I'm personally committed to ensuring that the content remains available; in the past, when I've just needed a reliable link to an isolated wiki page, I've re-posted wiki content on my own website and used that link. It'd be harder to do that here, though, because in many cases I'm referencing entire sections of the wiki, consisting of multiple pages. When/if the day comes for me to "rescue" the whole thing, I'd probably take a different approach than re-posting content. I'd also expect that when/if the wiki service shuts down or changes, it probably won't be possible to set up (even temporarily) a redirect to wherever I'm hosting the content instead.</p> <p>Any suggestions for what I should do about these links in the paper? The three options that've come to mind, in increasing order of appeal, are:</p> <p>1) Just use the current links, and get over it.<br /> 2) Include a link to a page on my own site somewhere in the paper, where I'll maintain a current list of reference URLs.<br /> 3) Look into creating an <a href="http://www.cdlib.org/services/uc3/ezid/">EZID</a> for each of the links, and use that to update the URL (I'm not 100% sure if I'll be able to get access to the EZID service).</p> <p>Has anyone come up with an elegant solution for this? </p>
