Now in its eighth year, the program provides a new perspective on saving history and culture, digital literacy, and critical thinking by having students make decisions about what "at risk" websites will be saved for posterity and actively work together to collect and describe those websites they deem worthy of long-term preservation.
We recommend that new applicants familiarize themselves with the following videos prior to applying in order to gain an understanding of web archiving and the Archive-It application that is used as part of the program.
Library of Congress, Web Archiving Overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0943YkhLWUArchive-It, Informational Webinar: http://bit.ly/ait-intro-video
