You can create Robust Links of any resource by right-clicking the item and choosing Robustify This Resource
and then selecting a web archive, as shown in the above picture. Archiving the resource is the first step in creating a Robust Link. You have the following options for web archives:
- Default Web Archive - ask the extension to use the default web archive configured under Robust Links Preferences (see next section)
- Any Web Archive - ask the extension to randomly choose an archive
- Internet Archive - ask the extension to create a memento at the Internet Archive, colloquially known as the Wayback Machine
- Archive.Today - ask the extension to create a memento at Archive.Today, also known as archive.is or archive.md
The result is a new note for the item as described above.
For this to work, the item must
contain a valid value in its URL
field. If the item does not contain a value for either of these, then Zotero Robust Links has nothing to work with and will not proceed further.
