The OCP moves to PURL

The OCP site is now accessible through the permanent address This is a PURL or Persistent URL which will remain active indefinitely. The actual OCP files are stored on servers elsewhere. Presently these are located at The University of Western Ontario, but this summer they will be moving to the servers of Acadia Divinity College. With the PURL address in place, however, users can access the OCP files through one permanent URL despite these sorts of moves from one institution to another. All published references to the OCP documents should cite the new PURL address, not the actual location of the files (visible in your browser's navigation bar). This will allow future readers to access the cited files, even if unforseen circumstances force another move to different servers.
