Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in New York State Web Archive

Archived since: Jan, 2020


In recent years, citizens of New York who are living on or around freshwater lakes have learned first-hand how inconvenient and at times dangerous harmful algal blooms (HABs) can be. Many have become involved in citizen science efforts, gathering water samples that can be analyzed for the presence of HABs. Meanwhile, local news sources, NGOs, and government organizations have undertaken efforts to educate the public about the risks of exposure to HABs, and some have shared strategies for reducing the potency and frequency of HABs in their communities. To capture this moment in time, Cornell University Library is preserving and making accessible selected websites identified as being reflective of how citizens are responding to the risk of HABs as well as how scientific information is being shared.

Hydraulic Fracturing in New York State Web Archive

Archived since: Aug, 2011


For a number of years, the citizens of New York State have engaged in a rich debate concerning the prospect of hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus Shale. While some of the discussion and events have been captured by news outlets, much of the information is appearing on web sites and social media. Unfortunately, web sites disappear over time and important content can vanish. To ensure that this important trove of information is available to future generations of scholars, the Cornell University Library is creating a permanent archive of the web sites concerned with the issue of hydraulic fracturing in New York.

NGOs in Nepal

Archived since: Oct, 2018


Throughout recorded history, Nepal has nestled between the giant cultural formations of India to the south and China/Tibet to the north. With the globalization of modern times, international interests and concerns draw Nepal into contact with more distant corners of the world.

Some are international NGOs and some are purely Nepali, some are long running and some are startups. All of the websites archived here are NGO self-presentations of their aspirations and their achievements on various fronts—humanitarian, environmental, economic, political, religious, and more.

New York Climate Change Science Web Archive

Archived since: May, 2014


New York State is poised to become a leader in planning for and adapting to the impacts of climate change. Climate change science is a broad and diverse field, and sorting through and understanding the amount and detail of scientific information available is a challenge to scientists, engineers, policy makers and practitioners alike. To address these challenges the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), Cornell University, State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) and the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have teamed up to create the New York Climate Change Science Clearinghouse (NYCCSC). Funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the NYCCSC will be a regional, web-based interface for accessing data, documents, maps and information relevant to climate change adaptation and mitigation across New York State. Because the site is meant as a portal for discovery of a broad range of information held and maintained elsewhere, this collection will serve as an archive of the changing content climate change websites relevant to and discoverable via the NYCCSC.

Prison Labor

Archived since: Aug, 2022


The 2022 report, Captive Labor: Exploitation of Incarcerated Workers created by the ACLU, points out that two of every three incarcerated people (nearly 800,000 people) are workers within the federal and state prison systems. Yet, because the 13th Amendment protects against slavery and involuntary servitude except as punishment for a crime, those workers do not enjoy the same protections as workers on the outside. Minimum wage laws, the right to collective bargaining and unionization, and even worker safety laws do not apply to those working in American prisons. This webarchive seeks to capture the sites created by state and federal governments to promote and sell products made in prisons; sites created by groups that support the self-organization of incarcerated workers; and sites created by entities that advocate for improvements in the working conditions of incarcerated people.

Privacy Policies

Archived since: May, 2019


Libraries have a long tradition of protecting the privacy of patrons. When the contents of library collections was only print, librarians did things such as purge transaction records upon return of physical items. Libraries continue that practice for print items, but as more of our collection is licensed electronic resources hosted by a third party, we are finding that our traditional reader privacy approach is insufficient. As part of the Privacy-as-a-Service Cornell University Library is developing, we will be doing much more to monitor third party handling of patron data. This web archiving collection provides us with a method for collecting privacy statements from vendors automatically, today and into the future.

U.S. Worker Centers Web Archive

Archived since: Feb, 2017


Worker centers are community-based and community-led organizations that organize and provide support to workers. The number of worker centers in the United States has been steadily growing since the 1990s. Many worker centers have established an internet presence through web sites and social media. Worker centers often operate on limited budgets and staffing, resulting in web sites and content that can be ephemeral. With this collection of web sites, the Martin P. Catherwood Library in Cornell University’s ILR School aims to make information about these worker organizations available to future generations of scholars.
