Following the success of previous efforts to preserve web content relating to the 2010 and 2012 Olympic Games, members of the IIPC are again working together to archive content relating to the 2014 Winter Olympics. The Games will be held in Sochi, Russia in February 2014 and the Paralympic Games in March 2014.
The IIPC Access Working Group is happy to coordinate the project as in the past. The Internet Archive and the University of North Texas will support the project, by crawling the selected seeds and supporting the use of this nomination tool.
It is hoped that the project will enable institutions to continue to experiment with tools and processes that facilitate collaborative definition, collection and accessibility of web data and to create a data set that can be shared/accessed by all IIPC members.
