Presentation for the 2015 Open Access Symposium discussing collecting and archiving the Federal web.

Physical Description

89 p.


Abstract: The University of North Texas Libraries has actively been involved in the collection of Web-published material from the federal government for over fifteen years. The CyberCemetery began in the mid-1990's as a collection of defunct agency, commission, committee and initiative websites. In 2008 UNT Libraries worked with other US members of the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) to collect and preserve the federal .gov Web presence during the transition period from the Bush to the Obama administrations. Based on the success of the 2008 End of Term Presidential Harvest, in 2012 an expanded group of IIPC members created a snapshot of the Obama administration between his two presidential terms. This presentation will describe these large collaborative projects and how important this content is in relation to the goals of research libraries in the 21st century.
