2 Why collaborate on K12 Web Archiving? Archiving at-risk web content from a new perspective - K12 students Library of Congress has a strong educational foundation and contacts in the schools The Archive-It web application allows students and teachers to do hands-on archiving with a user friendly interface, automated crawling and (almost) immediate results

3 Pilot and Year 1 Pilot Program, Spring 2008 –3 High Schools (California, Illinois, and Louisiana) 2008-2009 school year: –9 schools in 7 states 1 Elementary School 2 Middle Schools 6 High Schools –Student archiving groups were: Social studies, journalism, or extended learning classes Extracurricular groups

5 Program Account Specifics Document Budget: 15,000,000 documents Data Budget: 1 terabyte of data Active Collection Budget: Up to three collections can be scheduled for crawling at the same time. Active Seed Budget: up to 300 seeds can be scheduled for crawling at any one time

6 Students as Curators: the Numbers Created 68 collections Crawled 1,704 seeds Archived 233,554,220 URLs 87% of K12 seeds were not being archived by more than one school within the program 97% of K12 seeds were not being archived by other Archive-It partners 24% of K12 seeds are not in the Internet Archive’s general web archive

12 Lessons Learned Changes for the 2009-2010 school year

13 Current School Year: At a Glance 15 schools in 13 states –1 Elementary School –9 Middle Schools –4 High Schools –1 District-wide Program Student archiving groups are: –History, social studies or extended learning classes –Extracurricular groups


15 Student Age Groups Program pilot - all high school students 2008-2009 school year - 5th graders and middle school students were very creative, web-savvy and successful in the program This helped us justify expanding the program to more younger students in the current school year

16 Training teachers and students Simplified the Archive-It training –Less information about scoping options Created a special area in the Archive-It Help Wiki for K12 documentation Encouraged teachers to use K12 listserv so that new teachers can learn from those in their second or third year of the program

17 Budgeting and Crawl Frequency Due to the timing of the students’ work on the program, weekly and especially daily crawls could get out of hand This year we explicitly asked schools not to crawl at daily or twice daily frequencies We also encouraged the use of test crawls when creating new collections

18 Do Not Archive list Students were generally very creative with their seed selection A Do Not Archive list was created to avoid continually archiving the following large sites: – – (including – – (and – – –
