New Archive-It 5.0 Features

April 20th, 2015

The past few months have brought two new releases for Archive-It 5.0, our redesign and feature upgrade of the Archive-It web application that will complete this summer.

This week we expanded on the redesigned Reports interface to include an “Actionable Host Report” allowing partners to make crucial scoping decisions to archive more or less content for future crawls while analyzing the results of a finished crawl, streamlining the web archiving work flow.

In February we released a completely new interface for downloading and importing  metadata for archived websites and documents. It is now much easier to edit metadata in bulk and see the changes before committing them.

All these features were  requested by partner organizations and many users were involved in planning, design, and testing of various components of Archive-It 5.0.

Looking towards May, we are excited about releasing even more new features including the ability to view and save test crawls, monitor currently running crawls, pause and resume crawls, and resume crawls that have stopped due to a limit.
