PURL Server News

The PURL Server is being replaced with a new architecture.

During the transition period the ability to Register, Create, or Modify records on this Server will be disabled. If testing of the new release is successful, we will announce a more definite cutover date.

When this new architecture goes into effect some of the purls that were resolved by the old purl server will cause errors on the new system. This is because some of the purls sent to the server are not legitimate urls.

Examples of these illegal purls are: /dc/elements/1.1\\ (trailing illegal characters)
