Cobweb: Collaborative Collection Development for Web Archives

Cobweb logo

Cobweb is an open source platform to support collaborative and coordinated collection development for web archives. Cobweb’s core functionality supports digital curators in establishing projects to collect thematically organized web archives, allows for submission of nominations to those projects, tracks claims made by collecting organizations to participate by archiving nominated web resources, and reports on holdings that have been archived.
