PERSISTENT UNIFORM RESOURCE LOCATORS (PURLs)     
The CEAL Homepage URL is registered as a PURL. PURLs function as routers, allowing web pages to move from one server to another without resulting in broken links on other web pages or in personal "favorites" or "bookmarks." (for more information on PURLs, see http://purl.oclc.org/). The chair of CLT will be responsible for ensuring that the registration of the CEAL homepage as a PURL is up-to-date.  The CEAL PURL is: http://purl.oclc.org/net/ceal.
