Preserving Access to Government Websites: Development and Practice in the CyberCemetery

Preserving Access to Government Websites: Development and Practice in the CyberCemetery

Date: May 26, 2008
Creator: Hoffman, Starr
Description: This paper discusses the development and practice in the CyberCemetery. In the late 1990's, online U.S. government information was appearing and disappearing at a rapid pace. In 1999, the University of North Texas Libraries (UNT) formed a partnership with the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) to address this issue by archiving electronic government websites. This archive, known as the CyberCemetery, provides permanent public access to the websites and publications of defunct U.S. government agencies and commissions. This partnership between UNT and GPO has expanded to include the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). This paper covers the CyberCemetery's development and the process of identifying, capturing, and publishing content in the archive.
