Internet Archive Releases New Version of Its Archiving Service

Internet Archive ( announced the latest release of Archive-It 1.5, a subscription-based archiving service geared toward a broad range of institutions at a cost said to be considerably lower than other archive platforms. Archive-It enables subscribers to capture, categorize, and preserve online material from their own institutions' Web sites as well as from the World Wide Web. Users are able to explore these text-searchable collections without needing additional technical expertise. New features and applications of the Archive-It 1.5 release include enhancements to the user interface, improved access to collections, and advanced search and reporting capabilities.

Current partners include the Library of Virginia, University of Toronto, Indiana University, and North Carolina State Archives, plus additional academic institutions. The breadth of archived collections extends into the millions, with each yearly $10,000 subscription affording an institution up to three collections totaling more than 10,000,000 URLs.

Internet Archive is itself a subscriber to Archive-It; most recently it featured collections about such topics as the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake Centennial and Hurricane Katrina. These collections are not only offered to the public as a resource, but are also built by the communities they serve. The Katrina collection alone contains more than 25 million unique pages, where all text is searchable, from more than 1,500 sites. In 2007, the Commonwealth of Virginia will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. This collection documents the Web presence of this commemoration across and beyond Virginia.
