Cornell Libraries and IT cost-share an Archive-IT subscription Albany using Archive-It as a backup and extracting some of the web archive contents into some local representation (e.g., PDFs of meeting minutes in finding aids) Most people are doing institutional web archiving (as opposed to subject-based archiving). Using librarian subject liaisons to identify faculty members not on the official .edu domain it can be easier to build topic-based web archive collections as opposed to an institutional mandate domain-based web archive

Internet Archive is now providing research tools that boil down some of the content such as metadata so a researcher doesn’t have to deal with the entirety of a WARC file
