The Web-at-Risk project is a digital preservation project funded by the Library of
Congress as part of the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program.
The project is developing a web archiving service to enable curators to build, store, and manage
archived collections of web-published materials captured largely from US federal and state
government agency web sites. In 2005 the project's 22 curators, as well as librarians and

need for collaborations among libraries and government entities for preserving web-published
