Archive-It Educational Partnerships

The Archive-It team works with a number of academic programs in iSchools, Library,  Archives, and Information Science programs,  preservation programs, humanities disciplines, and other graduate-level classes to facilitate the use of Archive-It in instruction and pedagogy. Our goal is to work with educational programs to support essential skill building in collecting, preserving, and making accessible cultural heritage on the web.

As part of educational partnerships, Archive-It provides partners with subsidized accounts for its Archive-It web archiving service, which includes web application training, student user support, and permanent online access to student collections. Program staff all offer input and feedback on curriculum design or assignment details, and help promote student work and class outcomes.
