Web Archiving

Special Collections & University Archives uses the web archiving tool Archive-It to capture and preserve web content that relates to and enhances existing collections within the Manuscripts Collections and University Archives. The captured content dates from 2018 to the present. This includes, but is not limited to, websites for publications or individuals whose papers we currently hold; ephemeral online, born-digital content such as university event calendars; and websites maintained by colleges, departments, centers, and student organizations on campus. Special preference is given to content that enhances new and existing manuscripts collections; content that is ephemeral in nature and/or is otherwise challenging to document in traditional form such as print; content that represents current areas with few physical holdings in the University Archives; and content that provides documentation for SC&UA’s routine functions, namely previous iterations of SC&UA webpages. 

Search and browse our archived web collections in the Internet Archive WayBack Machine at the UNI Archive-It page. Links to specific collections in Archive-It are found in relevant finding aids in Manuscripts and University Archives.

As resources permit, SC&UA welcomes suggestions for additional websites and online content to capture using Archive-It! Send your suggestions to libarchives@uni.edu.
