Persistent URL Service, purl.org, Now Run by the Internet Archive

“OCLC and theĀ Internet Archive today announced the results of a year-long cooperation to ensure the future of purl.org. The organizations have worked together to build a new service hosted by the Internet Archive that will manage the persistent URLs and sub-domain redirections for purl.org, purl.com and purl.net.Since its introduction by OCLC Research in 1995, purl.org has providedĀ a source of Persistent URLs (PURLs) that redirect users to the correct hosting location for documents, data, and websites as they change over time.” (via Internet Archive Blogs)
