UC’s California Digital Library Launches Web Archiving Service

The Web Archiving Service provides tools to easily capture, analyze, and preserve Web content. It enables users to define sites to be captured, choose capture settings for each site, and capture the content; provides basic statistics about capture results; contains comparison tools that allow users to analyze changes on a site over time; and allows users to publish archives of Web sites that can be searched together.

The University of California’s California Digital Library (CDL) hosts the service’s tools and storage and provides information about rights management practices and collection development in web archiving, as well as web archiving training sessions.  The service was developed as part of the Web-at-Risk grant, funded by the National Digital Information and Infrastructure Preservation Program and led by the CDL.
