Web Capture at MINERVA

The Library of Congress has launched a website to explain its program to capture and archive select, historically important websites for future historians. LOC’s MINERVA Web Archiving Project already has archives of digital primary source materials for Elections 2000 and 2002, September 11, the 107th Congress, and Hurricane Katrina. The project will expand to include the crisis in Darfur, the Supreme Court, the Papal transition, US Congressional sites, Election 2004, Iraq 2003, the 2002 Winter Olympic games, and September 11 remembrance. The meaning of the acronym for MINERVA is: Mapping the INternet Electronic Resources Virtual Archive.
