About this Collection
- Collection Period:
- June 2014 to ongoing.
The General News on the Internet Web Archive contains general news sites with a focus on stories of national interest for all audience levels. The collection contains born-digital publications and publications that were once only available in print and are now only available online.
Given the dynamic nature of the 24-hour news cycle of today, these archives are meant to capture as much of the news distribution as possible given current limitations in technology and resources. For most news-based sites, we use a hybrid approach of weekly captures of the websites, augmented with twice-daily capture of known RSS feeds (Real Simple Syndication). This produces a more complete news archive.
The General News on the Internet Web Archive is an ongoing collecting effort.
