Preserving Bucknell’s Websites

In July 2012, Special Collections/University Archives began capturing the Bucknell’s public website and social media accounts to preserve web-based content that documents the University’s web presence now and in the future. Utilizing the Archive-It crawler, selected Bucknell web domains or websites are periodically copied to ensure long-term access. Once crawled, the web site is arranged and described by Special Collections/University Archives staff and is made publicly available on the Archive-It website using the Internet Archive’s Way Back Machine. To see the captures:http://www.archive-it.org/organizations/643.

To see archived copies of Bucknell’s website before 2012 (all the way back to 1996), visit the Internet Archive:  http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.bucknell.edu

If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please contact Special Collections/University Archives at scua@bucknell.edu.
