The National Library of Medicine (NLM) reports that it will begin using the Internet Archive’s Archive-It Web archiving service to capture and preserve periodic snapshots of NLM Web resources.
- NLM to Broaden Its Institutional Web Site Archiving. Rees J., NLM Tech Bull. 2014 Sep-Oct;(400):e3.
This is a change in policy. NLM says that it “will cease the application and management of its previous permanence policy to individual Web pages and documents” which included recording permanence metadata within HTML headers, performing pre-publication appraisal and review by NLM archivists, and maintaing version control for deleted and updated content. It says that the new approach will broaden and simplify its approach to archiving its own Web sites and that it is confident that its new approach “will provide a richer and deeper historical record of NLM programs, activities, and services.”
