Bowdoin College

Archive-It Partner Since: Jan, 2016

Organization Type: Colleges & Universities

Organization URL: http://www.bowdoin.edu   

Description:

Web archiving at Bowdoin College is administered by Bowdoin Library’s George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives (SC&A). In accordance with its charge to preserve College records of enduring value, SC&A seeks to archive web content created by the Bowdoin administration and the Bowdoin community to document College history.

The primary focus of Bowdoin’s web archiving effort is the official college website (bowdoin.edu), including its subpages (e.g. bowdoin.edu/academics) and subdomains (e.g. library.bowdoin.edu). The capture of official Bowdoin content also includes Bowdoin-managed social media accounts. Other non-official web content created independently by members of the Bowdoin community, primarily students and student organizations, is also archived (e.g. the website of the Bowdoin Orient).

Further description and contextualization of our web archives is made available through collection guides on our website (library.bowdoin.edu/arch), where you can also find our Web Archives Collecting Statement and our web archive nomination form.
