Welcome to the TriCollege Libraries Web Archives

Archive-It, a subscription service from the Internet Archive, allows institutions to build and preserve collections of born digital content. Archive-It partners, like the Tri-College Consortium, can harvest, catalog, manage, and browse their archived collections. Collections are hosted at the Internet Archive data center and are accessible to the public with full-text search.

According to the Library of Congress, "the average life of a web page is only 44 days; 44 percent of the Websites found in 1998 could not be found in 1999. In addition, site content tends to change rapidly." Archive-It gives the Tri-College Libraries the ability to create focused collections of websites that will be archived permanently. The Libraries archive three specific types of websites: Quaker sites, Peace sites, and sites having to do with the Tri-Colleges themselves.
