Our Web Archive Collections
Below you will find links to, and a brief description of, each of our unique web archive collections that are housed in the Internet Archive. These collections are intended to complement our existing primary collecting areas. As our web archiving initiative grows we will continue to add additional collections to this page in the future.
The bulk of the NCSU Web Archive is dedicated to preserving the unique cultural heritage of our institution as it is represented on university websites. To meet these goals we have partnered with the Internet Archive. The Internet Archive provides us with the tools and technology required to crawl, capture, store, and provide access to the websites in our collection. We have identified many of the primary websites used by the university and are regularly capturing those sites for preservation.
The Architecture and Design Web Archive collection is meant to complement the Special Collection Research Center's Architecture and Design collecting area. It features websites from top architectural and design firms in the region, as well as websites of award-winning architects.
The Landscape Architecture Web Archive is meant to compliment the Special Collection Research Center's existing Landscape Architecture collecting area. It contains websites of prominent landscape architects, landscape architecture firms as well as websites dedicated to large landscape architecture projects.
The James B. Hunt Jr. Library Impact collection is dedicated to documenting the impact that the James B. Hunt library has had on our students, our community and the greater library community as a whole. The web pages included in this collection are primarily articles that have been written about the library. As new articles are published they will be added to the collection.
