Journal/Book: Ref User Serv Q. 2000; 39: 50 E Huron St, Chicago, IL 60611, USA. Amer Library Assoc. 273-277.
Abstract: This article examines whether outdated URLs are still a problem and to what extent they decrease the usefulness of paper bibliographies and reviews of Web sites. The authors make specific recommendations that bibliographers and Web site authors can use to increase the probability of users finding Web sites that may have relocated, thus improving the long term utility of Web site bibliographies.
