Description

From October 2 to November 20, 2017, a working group of individuals representing  multiple NDSA member institutions and interest groups conducted a survey of  organizations in the United States actively involved in, or planning to start, programs to  archive content from the Web. This effort builds upon and extends a broader effort begun in three earlier surveys, which the NDSA Web Archiving Survey working group has conducted since 2011.The goal of these surveys is to better understand the landscape  of Web archiving activities in the United States by investigating the organizations involved;  the history and scope of their Web archiving programs; the types of Web content being  preserved; the tools and services being used; access and discovery services being offered;  and overall policies related to Web archiving programs. The responses from this survey  document the current state of U.S. Web archiving initiatives and the comparison with the  results of the 2011, 2013, and 2016 surveys enables an analysis of emerging trends.
