Research Using Web Archives

A guide to finding and using archived websites in research, including web archive collections curated by Penn State University Libraries.


Penn State University Libraries seeks to obey any website-specific instructions concerning archiving, whether expressed in machine-readable format using the robots exclusion standard or in reasonably discoverable human-readable text. In cases where these directives would prevent the archiving of content, University Libraries will seek permission from the content owner before proceeding.

Content owners may request that access to archived versions of their content be disabled. Please contact us directly via email if you are a content owner and would like your website removed from public view in a web archive.
