Project Description

This collaborative project is an extension of past End of Term projects, intended to document the federal government's web presence by archiving government websites and data. As part of this preservation effort, URLs supplied from partner institutions, as well as nominated by the public, will be crawled regularly to provide an on-going view of federal agencies' web and social media presence.

Interested members of the public, particularly government information specialists, are invited to submit selected web sites to be included in the collection. For more information on partner institutions, web crawling and past End of Term projects, please visit the End of Term Archive.
