Description:

The Harvard University Archives is the oldest and one of the largest institutional academic archives in the nation.

The Harvard University Archives collects, organizes, preserves and provides access to a comprehensive record of more than 375 years of life at Harvard. From 17th and 18th century diaries and scientific observations to 21st century web sites, the Harvard University Archives’ collections comprise over 51,000 feet and 9 terabytes of University records and related historical materials.

This activity is tied integrally to records management services for Harvard University staff, administrators and faculty. Records management staff provide guidance and resources for all stages in the records and information lifecycle, from creating records through destruction of non-permanent records or transfer of permanent records to the Harvard University Archives.

Title: Harvard Library Web Archive Collection Service

URL: http://wax.lib.harvard.edu/

Collection: A-Sites: Archived Harvard Websites

Description: The public interface for Harvard's Web Archive Collection Service (WAX) launched on February 4, 2009.

It was the first LDI project specifically oriented toward preserving "born-digital" material. The WAX pilot was a collaboration of the University Library's Office for Information Systems with three University partners, each fielding a single project: the Harvard University Archives (Harvard University Library); the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America (Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study); and the Edwin O. Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies (Faculty of Arts and Sciences, with sponsorship from Harvard College Library). The WAX system was decommissioned at the end of 2017; access to its web archives is now through the Archive-It web archiving service.
