What does Perma do?
- Perma creates a permanent, archived version of a website and assigns a permanent URL to that archived version.
When should I use Perma?
- Use Perma when citing to ephemeral material on the Internet, such as blogs or working papers – any website that does not already use another form of permanent URL.
How do I access Perma?
- Go to http://perma.cc
