The URL Nomination Tool has been designed by the project team and developed by the University of North Texas to provide the community of subject specialists with a convenient means to contribute information on specific sites for a focused crawl. The tool was initially populated with URLs (“seeds”) from previous harvests. Using the tool, participants may suggest additional URLs, add recommendations for priority, and add brief additional information as appropriate. After nomination occurs, this new list is used as the crawlers initial list of URLs to crawl.
