edu and gov sites
I use bookmarks a lot, and I've got to say that even with bookmarks, edu and gov sites simply don't have a clue how to maintain references. When they change urls, more often than not they don't properly redirect them.
Also, some will simply cut navigation or PR flow to lower level pages from the top, so lower level pages become orphaned and often drop out of the index, though the pages might still be there.
And then, of course, stuff gets taken down.
I now just *can't trust Google* to return it in the future
Unfortunately, this is true too. Changing algos are causing easy searches to become not so easy.
I have a friend in academia who drives me crazy sending me pdfs of every article he wants me to see, but all of the above are involved in why he creates his own archive and thinks that I want one too.
