Archive What I See Now: Bringing Institutional Web Archiving Tools to the Individual Researcher

Further development of a toolset that would allow individual humanities researchers and institutions to easily archive websites and to navigate archived collections.

Archiving web pages is an essential method for ensuring ephemeral web resources are available for future research. Our goals are 1) to enable users to generate files suitable for use by large-scale archives with tools as simple as the “bookmarking” or “save page as” approaches that they already know, and 2) to enable users to access the archived resources in their browser. We propose to build three open-source tools to support this personal-scale web archiving: WARCreate, WAIL, and Mink.
