Hi ​Trebor and Brita, nice to hear from you - and that there's progress on
Perma.cc adoption there.

I'm not hugely familiar with Zotero and its export, but Perma supports
'batch link creation': you can copy and paste in a list of line separated
URLs and it will automatically go through the list, creating an archive +
Perma Link for each.

Hm-do you have an NYT article as an example? I know given the
particularities of certain sites, some will have their articles spread over
several pages and Perma doesn't have the ability to know to page through
the article, depending on the website. In some cases, Perma-ing the "print
view" of the page will let you view - and archive - it in full.

We're also integrating some new technology ove the next couple of months
that may also include an automatic scroll-and-archive feature, depending on
the page in question that's being captured.

Thanks and talk to you soon,

Dear Brett,

Brita Servaes is investigating if The New School can commit to Perma.cc

We expect a positive answer but have not heard back yet.

In the meantime, one of our research assistants started to enter a large
number of needed resources into Zotero.

Our software lead asked us to use Zotero as that has a good export feature.

Eventually, we hope to get the citations out of Zotero and into Perma.cc

Can that be easily done?

And specifically, does Perma.cc crawl pages?
Let’s say we list a NYT articles that runs on for several pages.

Does Perma.cc follow those links to the next page or does it merely archive
page 1?
