Web archiving

“Web archiving is the process of collecting portions of the World Wide Web, preserving the collections in an archival format, and then serving the archives for access and use.” (International Internet Preservation Consortium)

“Web archiving is an international, digital preservation and curation-based discipline that acquires web resources and data published on the Internet. It ensures the data is selected, curated, and digitally preserved, and makes the resources available for future consultation and research.” (Library and Archives Canada)
