COVID-19 Web Archiving Special Campaign

Archive-It COVID-19 Collecting icon

In response to a dramatic increase in institutions building, or wanting to build, web archive collections documenting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Archive-It has offered significant cost-sharing for use of our subscription web archiving services. Archive-It is currently used by over 900 libraries, memory organizations, nonprofits and others to preserve and provide perpetual access to the archived web. We want to do everything we can to enable existing and new partners to preserve the web-published records of this historical event.

Special Campaign Details

Archive-It is offering cost-sharing from 40%-70% for data budget increases to those who want to build web archive collections related to the COVID-19 pandemic. For institutions or projects in extreme financial uncertainty, we will work with you to find a way to support your COVID-19 web archiving plans. We expect this cost-sharing offer to be phased out at the end of 2021, so if you’d like to increase your data at a discounted rate, please reach out to us as soon as possible.

For Existing Partners

Existing partners can use this form to request COVID-19 web archiving data budget increases. Within the form, please select “COVID-19 Web Archiving Campaign data increase” as your subject. For those who have recently increased their data budget for COVID-19 collecting, or expect to soon, we will work with you to incorporate this offer in your current subscription.
