Web Archiving Activities

The goal of our web archiving activities is to expand collaborative opportunities between CDL, UC Libraries and web archiving community partners in order to extend collective capacity to steward web archive collections. Our focus is on developing and supporting tools for researchers and curators, collection development, and discovery and access.


With funding from the Institute of Library and Museum Services and in partnership with UCLA and Harvard University, CDL is developing Cobweb, an open source platform to support collaborative 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made by collecting organizations to participate by archiving nominated web resources, and reports on holdings that have been archived.
