CUL partner with internet archive to collect and archive web resources 

The proliferation of freely available internet resources of high-research value has far outpaced libraries’ efforts to collect and preserve them, forcing our collection development models to evolve. With the benefit of continued support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in 2009, the Columbia University Libraries and Information Services (CULIS) began a three-year project on Web Resources Collection Program Development (following a 2008 pilot project).

 

The project’s objective is to develop best practices and standards for collecting and preserving freely available web resources and to integrate this activity into existing library collection development and technical services programs.
