Belarusian Politics and Society

Archived since: Sep, 2020

Description:

The Belarusian Politics and Society Web Archive exists to preserve websites, social media, and other digital content related to the 2020 presidential election campaign in Belarus and the events that followed. Its primary focus is on output of the opposition to President Alexander Lukashenko and of unofficial, pro-Lukashenko actors, including: non-governmental organizations, local news outlets, trade unions, cultural organizations, and individual cultural figures and activists. These materials are endangered either by the Belarusian regime itself taking action to suppress them, or by individuals responding to pressure from the regime to self-censor and remove materials from the Internet. This Archive will provide stable and continuing availability of these ephemeral resources for current and future researchers. The Belarusian Politics and Society Web Archive is curated by librarians at Harvard and Stanford Universities, and the University of Chicago, under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. Nominate sites for inclusion in the Archive using this form: https://forms.gle/sEwuVGNGg9UaVD2j9.

Digital Gaming Communities

Archived since: Mar, 2020

Description:

The Digital Gaming Communities Web Archive preserves content, across varying web formats, generated by and related to digital games, in order to foster research within the discipline. Themes collected include critical gaming, game ethics, accessibility in gaming and game design, and user reviews and playthroughs. Content can be created by an individual, group of individuals, organizations, or corporations. While other sites are collecting digital games and criticism of digital games, no other archive is collecting the responses of the gamers themselves. This Archive will give current and future researchers a means of studying digital games and gamers in distinct and different ways than secondary sources represent. This collection attempts to collect many facets of gaming culture, which may include views expressed by people associated with extremist groups and may include hate speech in some cases. Although some users may find this content offensive or dangerous, its primary purpose is for research and teaching. The Archive is a collaboration between Dartmouth College, the University of Chicago, and Duke, Michigan State, and Wilfrid Laurier Universities, under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. Curators of the Archive are: Laura R. Braunstein, Michelle Goodridge, Arianne Hartsell-Gundy, Matthew Murray, André G. Wenzel, and Jonah Magar.

Extreme Right Movements in Europe

Archived since: Jan, 2019

Description:

The Extreme Right Movements in Europe Web Archive is a collection built by members of the Ivies Plus Western European Studies Affinity Group, under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. By ‘extreme right’ the Group understands a large ideological spectrum of radical right thinking, extending from anti-globalization and right-wing populism, to white nationalism, neo-fascism, and extremism. Extreme right movements and ideology share a number of features, which typically include hostility to globalization, fervent criticism of immigration, and have political, social, and religious aspects, and exist outside of and are more radical than mainstream conservatism. The Archive collects a wide array of web content, and aims to preserve this content for scholars, teachers, and future researchers in the humanities and social sciences as documentation of the rise of extreme right movements in Europe in the early twenty-first century. Although some users may find this content offensive or dangerous, its primary purpose is for research and teaching. Due to the nature of this material, access to the Archive is restricted to on-campus use within the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. If you have questions about this collection, please contact erme@library.columbia.edu.

Greater China Archival Resources

Archived since: Jul, 2020

Description:

One of the hurdles researchers of modern and contemporary China face in their studies is knowing about, and having access to, archival collections held at Chinese archives. The Greater China Archival Resources Web Archive collects websites belonging to established, physical archives and learned archival societies located in the Greater China region, and archival projects from or about the Greater China region. Under the Chinese government, local archives administratively operate under the guidance of the local archival bureaus which themselves are part of local government and responsible for archival management for entire geographical areas. Therefore, the information available on the websites not only covers the collections that are held in each of the physical archives, but also includes policies, news, reports, research articles, and publications that are related to archival management in respective provinces, cities, or countries. Curated by librarians within the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation, the Archive aims to provide stable reference to the born-digital content originating from Chinese archives for future access, and attempts to capture the changes of these websites over time, thus documenting political change in China.

Independent Documentary Filmmakers from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan

Archived since: May, 2019

Description:

Chinese independent documentary filmmakers from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong have been crucial to bring attention to social and political developments. Their projects are important primary source material for the study of contemporary China, and support institutions’ programs on contemporary China studies. Because of the sensitive nature of their work, their web presences are at risk to disappear at any time. Distribution of Chinese independent documentary films also increasingly faces difficulties. The filmmaker’s websites, blogs and video feeds include information and videos that are otherwise unavailable. Curated by Luo Zhou, Chinese Studies Librarian at Duke, and Joshua Seufert, Chinese Studies Librarian at Princeton, the archive aims to systematically capture and preserve theses ephemeral websites for future access.

India's Citizenship Amendment Act Protest Movements

Archived since: Mar, 2020

Description:

In the last two years, the Government of India under its ruling Hindu nationalist party, the Bharatiya Janata Party, has enacted the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), and promoted other regulations, such as the National Register of Citizenship (NRC), designated to change the rules for who can and who cannot be or become an Indian citizen, and who can immigrate — for the first time making religion a key criterion. These regulations have sparked communal tensions and fears among India's religious and ethnic minorities. The Indian Citizenship Amendment Act Protest Movements Web Archive documents the widespread social justice movements and anti-CAA organizations to support them, as well as the allied movements mobilizing women and students with them, including groups of freedom fighters, oppressed castes, transgender people, and other marginalized communities. The Archive also contains documentation of the government crackdowns and violent suppression of these protests. The Archive is curated by Aruna Magier (New York University0, Jef Pierce (University of Pennsylvania), and Gary Hausman (Columbia University), under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation.

Muftiships

Archived since: Jun, 2020

Description:

The Muftiships Web Archive preserces the websites — which may include videos, images, and PDF files — of Muftis and leading jurists from the Islamic world. These websites cover the responses of leading judicial authorities to current events in their respective countries (and in some cases well beyond). In addition to the content, the websites illustrate the manner in which these authorities engage with their public, and the ways in which Islamic law is administered in the digital age. In light of the Coronavirus pandemic in the Middle East and the Islamic world, these websites gained greater visibility. However, these jurists and institutions have been the focus of interest for decades. This is a collaborative project -- under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation -- led by Gayle Fischer (Harvard University), Roberta Dougherty (Yale University), Peter Magierski (Columbia University), Guy Burak (New York University), and Sean Swanick (Duke University). Fatwa and other statements directly related to Covid-19 were supplied by Dr. Adnan Zulfiqar (Rutgers Law) as part of the 'Mapping Covid Fatwas' project, in conjunction with Harvard University's Program in Islamic Law.

Popline and K4Health Web Archive

Archived since: Mar, 2019

Description:

Retired on September 1, 2019, the Popline database contained more than 400,000 records and provided students and researchers worldwide with access to journal articles, reports, books, unpublished resources, and full-text documents to users in low- and middle-income countries. Popline was part of the Knowledge for Health Project (K4Health), which ended on September 10. As Popline's sponsoring organization, K4Health served as a neutral knowledge broker for program managers and health care providers working in family planning, reproductive health, and other global health areas and served more than 2.6 million users annually. On August 27, 2019, the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation created archival copies of K4Health, Popline, and Toolkits by K4Health. The copies preserve Popline's abstracts, organized by topic, but lack the database's search functionality. The copies also contain K4Health blog posts, and some downloadable resources and videos.

South Asian Gender and Sexuality

Archived since: Oct, 2020

Description:

Amplifying the voices of those fighting against long histories of patriarchal dominance, the South Asian Gender and Sexuality Web Archive documents and preserves the work of activists, grassroots organizations, and social justice movements committed to promoting the visibility and experiences of LGBTQAI+ people and women in South Asia and its diasporas. With an emphasis on the websites of non-governmental organizations, and on the resources generated by social justice activist groups and individuals, the Archive demonstrates how organizations approach goals of advocacy, education, and capacity building related to issues of gender and sexuality across South Asian regions. An additional focus on resources that showcase the voices of LGBTQAI+ people and women — as revealed in expressions such as oral narratives, writings, performance, and the arts — provides insight into the struggles and resilience of the marginalized, offering content that is largely unavailable or preserved elsewhere and which is likely to disappear. Under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation, and curated by Laura Ring (University of Chicago), Jef Pierce (University of Pennsylvania), Aruna Magier (New York University), and Richard Lesage (Harvard University), the Archive foregrounds the lives of South Asian LGBTQAI+ peoples and South Asian women around the world, and chronicles their movements against gender and sexuality based violence and discrimination.

Vaccination in Modern America: Misinformation vs. Public Health Advocacy

Archived since: Jan, 2020

Description:

The Vaccination in Modern America: Misinformation vs. Public Health Advocacy Web Archive is an initiative developed by librarians in the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. The Archive identifies and captures webpages representing the current state of public discourse and contrasting approaches to authority on the topic in the United States, with a focus on sites that are both pro- and anti-vaccination. The purpose of this collection is to capture potentially ephemeral information about vaccination that could be used by health service researchers, information scientists, sociologists, and others to understand the motivations, practices, and outcomes of health information and misinformation. Anti-vaccination sites were those that opposed the established national guidelines for vaccination and vaccination schedules, as well as those that focus on chemical vaccine adjuvants or organic natural living as a replacement for vaccination. Prominent natural living advocates and bloggers who have made anti-vaccination arguments, or who have expressed sympathies to vaccine avoidance, have been included to provide additional context around anti-vaccination information campaigns.
