What is Perma?

Perma is used by law journals and legal researchers to create a permanent archived version of a web page and to assign a permanent URL to that web page. This means that readers can click on a Perma URL in a footnote and view the website and the information that the author referred to when the URL was captured. Using Perma avoids the frustration of finding a dead link when a web site has been taken down or finding that a web page has been edited since it was viewed and cited by an author.
