Some issues were insurmountable but reflected broader issues people encounter when preserving digital content. Each IMOW digital exhibition featured links to external resources that helped enhance the curatorial theme. As we worked on the preservation project, we determined that many of these resources didn’t lead anywhere, leaving the exhibitions suffering from significant link rot
. In some places, the link rot existed for internal links as the domain wasn’t changed from “imow.org” to “globalfundforwomen.org” when the sites were migrated.
