As the initial project enters its final phase we are updating the website with the results of the Hiberlink work. The Developments page now includes a link to a pro-active archiving demonstrator: a plugin for Zotero and recommendations for Robust links syntax that support time stamping of URLs. Others will follow along with the final outputs of the project.
In terms of dissemination and outreach, Nature.com ran an article earlier this month that highlighted the work of the Hiberlink project, see The Trouble with Reference Rot Prior to that the team presented Memento Time Travel at the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) General Assembly in Palo Alto, California, on 28 April and held a breakout session on 'Reference Rot: Threat and Remedy' at UKSG 38th Annual Conference, in Glasgow, 30 & 31 March.

- 8-11 June, OR 2015, the 10th International Conference on Open Repositories in Indianapolis:
