Advice for dealing with broken web addresses
Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on November 25, 2011
You’ve done it, haven’t you? Pasted in or clicked on an interesting-sounding link and gotten…that dumb old “Error 404” page.
Well, from Alaskan Librarian Daniel Cornwall comes an excellent set of suggestions, Advice for Dealing with Broken URLs. If you can identify the slashes in the address field in your browser (internet program), you can learn to chase pages that have moved and find where else they may be archived. It’s not a 100% guarantee, but it’s better than just putting your head down on the keyboard and weeping with frustration.
