Web Archives Program

GW Libraries selects and archives websites relevant to library collection development initiatives, primary sources held by the Special Collections Research Center, and current research and teaching. We also collect websites affiliated with the University as part of our mission to serve as the official repository for records of the George Washington University. 

The web is continually changing and each day content disappears. To capture this history for future researchers, the web archive contains snapshots of selected websites, collected at regular points in time. We use Archive-It, a service provided by the Internet Archive, for web archiving.

If you have a webpage you would like to archive, please submit a request.

Currently, our collections include:

George Washington University

Websites produced by or affiliated with the George Washington University, documenting the administration, publications, policies, events, and announcements of the university community.

Corcoran Gallery of Art and Corcoran College of Art + Design

Websites describing the degree programs, resources, admissions, and administration and faculty of the Corcoran College of Art + Design prior to its merger with George Washington University in 2014. Also includes website of Corcoran Gallery of Art, which merged with the National Gallery of Art in 2014.
