Web Archiving in the United States: A 2017 Survey

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. This report describes the current state of the field, tracks the evolution of the field over the last few years, and points to future opportunities and developments.

Environmental Scan of Government Information and Data Preservation Efforts and Challenges

Description: This report is an output of the "Preserving Electronic Government Information (PEGI)" project.and it describes the landscape of initiatives within and outside of the federal government that aim to disseminate and preserve government information. It first describes government-led initiatives, from dissemination through official agency websites to publication on third-party platforms. Next, it considers the range of initiatives that have emerged in recent years outside of government to address perceived gaps and vulnerabilities in the federal government’s curation initiatives and to add value to publicly available information and datasets. It briefly touches upon initiatives that focus on advocacy, awareness, or education, rather than on directly providing preservation and access. The report goes on to address the policies and infrastructures undergirding both government-led and non-government initiatives. It concludes with a brief summary of gaps and recommendations for collective action. Each section contains representative examples, but does not contain an exhaustive list of initiatives relevant to federal government information.
