This course examines the challenges posed by the uncertainty of long-term access to web-based scholarly references. As authors of scientific articles, we increasingly reference resources on the web such as project websites, scholarly wikis, ontologies, datasets, source code, presentations, blogs, and videos. Yet these resources are, just like any other web resource, likely to disappear or significantly change over time. The course aims at outlining the extent of this reference rot problem and how it impacts our ability to revisit web content cited in scholarly articles some time after their publication. The course will also provide participants with hands-on experience with approaches and tools available to authors, archivists, librarians, publishers, and others to address this problem.
