Alexandria Library has partnered with Community Webs to launch this new community web archiving program. Community Webs, an initiative of Archive-It and the Internet Archive, aims to advance the capacity for public libraries, community archives, and other cultural heritage organizations to collaborate with their communities to build archives of web-published primary sources documenting local history and underrepresented voices. Community Webs achieves this mission by providing resources for professional training, technology services, networking, and in support of scholarly research.
The project was launched in 2017 and since then, more than 150 public libraries and other cultural heritage organizations have joined. To learn more about Community Webs and their other partner institutions, check out their website at https://communitywebs.archive-it.org/.
