Web Capture and Archiving

The Library’s commitment to providing digital access to materials of historical importance extends to content that exists only in digital form, including Web sites. In 2004, the Library’s Office of Strategic Initiatives created a Web Capture team to support the goal of managing and sustaining at-risk digital content.  Learn more about Web Capture

MINERVA was the Library’s first Web preservation project, and its success led to the development of the Web Capture team. The program was established to collect and preserve online primary source materials and to develop thematic Web archives on such topics as the United States elections, the Iraq War, and September 11.  View MINERVA collections
