The Archives uses Archive-It, a subscription service of the Internet Archive, to capture, preserve, and make accessible web content that falls within scope of our university records mandate and manuscripts collecting policy.
About the Web Archives
The Archives identifies a web domain or website, and then directs the Archive-It web crawler to periodically create copies to ensure long-term access. We generally crawl sites on an annual basis, although more frequent crawls are possible and exceptions are made as needed. After crawling the web site or web domain, Archive-It indexes the content and provides access on its own site.
Types of Web Content Collected
Types of Web Content Not Collected

We provide free access for the purposes of scholarship and research. We do not claim copyright to any of the materials within the Internet Archive. It is the sole responsibility of the user to determine the copyright status of these materials before publishing.
