The number of information services (Gopher, WWW, etc.) on the Internet is growing rapidly. This poses a problem for administrators, implementors and providers in maintaining the quality of the information service (as opposed to quality of the information itself). The aim of this working group is to deal with one of the specific problems with respect to quality of the information service, namely link problems. A link problem is defined as the case where a user selects a link and is returned slow data, no data, incomplete data or wrong data. The working group will analyze link failures and their causes, and, based on the analysis, it will devise both technical solutions and operational recommendations to address this specific problem.
