Assess whether it is appropriate to create a permalink for the citation.
Go to http://perma.cc, and log in. You should have received an e-mail from Perma with instructions on how to create an account. If you cannot find this e-mail, contact Matt Flyntz at firstname.lastname@example.org or (714) 628-2536. You should be directed to a screen that looks like the one below:
If not, click "Create and manage Perma Links" in the top right of the page.
Enter the original URL of the site for which you wish to create a permalink. Then, select the folder on the left-hand side of the screen where you want this permalink to reside (you will only see folders for your organization and a Personal Links folder). Do not place your permalink in your Personal Links folder. Your editors should create a folder for each author before you begin making permalinks. Finally, click Create Perma Link.
Review the permalink you just created. You are taken by default to the "capture," or Perma's attempt to capture the coding behind the web page. If something looks wrong, review the "Screenshot View," which is simply an image of the web page. If both of these look wrong, delete the permalink by clicking "Edit link details" and then the red "Delete record" button, and contact Matt Flyntz.
If everything looks okay, note the URL provided, and move on to the next step.
Per Bluebook Rule 18.2.1(d), add the permalink URL to the end of the citation, following the original URL, in brackets.
