==Marketing Friendly Persistent URL==
 
;<u>The marketing friendly persistent URL is vital for electronic citation persistence on the web in the long term and for repository marketing/branding.</u>
 
*Decide on a marketing friendly persistent (URL) for the repository.
 
*This name should be short and simple to remember, easy to type into documentation and good for marketing/branding.
 
*Ensure the name will never change and that it has a clean URL with no forward slash redirect.
 
  
;Good Examples
