PageVault is a subscription version of PermaCC targeted at legal professionals. Why not just use PermaCC? While PermaCC has accounts for individuals, they top out at 10 links a month. The only accounts that get unlimited links must originate from libraries, journals, or courts. They are looking at expanding and providing a pay for service, but until they do, PageVault fills that gap. Also, PageVault provides a service PermaCC does not. They will provide an affidavit, for a fee, to confirm that the webpage capture is authentic and has not been tampered so the capture can be admitted into evidence at trial. PageVault is not cheap, with the lowest priced plan starting at $95/month, but for those firms that could find this useful, it might be a sound investment. For smaller practices with tighter budget, there is hope. Some state bar associations are starting to partner with PageVault and offer the service as a part of membership. Want to just keep an eye on them while you weigh your options, check out their blog.
For the next few weeks, we will interrupt our regular posting schedule for what I’m referring to as a series of lightning posts, which is short posts published more often. A bit of context first. I recently attended the American Association of Law Libraries Annual Conference. Different talks highlighted a number of tools and programs that don’t warrant long elaborate posts. I have convinced Dee to join me in posting short evaluations/explanations of these tools on a weekly basis until we cover them all. Then it will be back to our regularly scheduled blogging.
Some of these tools you may know already, some you may not. You’ll find a list of what we plan to cover below, in no particular order. Could you go out and research them all on your own? Of course. But why spend all your valuable time when we can do the work for you.
ReadClearly, WriteClearly, BeelineReader, Compressor.io, Wave Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool, The Noun Project, PermaCC, Page Vault, Kahoot!, & Slack.
