    The Web Archive Singapore(WAS) is a collection of websites deemed to be of national and historical significance that are archived as Singapore heritage.

Over time it forms a record of events that capture the milieu of a nation, which tracks how our national identity develops and evolves.

    Wayback Machine
     

    The Wayback Machine is a digital time capsule created by the Internet Archive. It is maintained with content from Alexa Internet. This service allows users to see archived versions of web pages across time—what the Archive calls a "three dimensional index."

    Snapshots become available from 6 to 12 months after they are archived. The frequency of snapshots is variable, so not all updates to tracked websites are recorded, and intervals of several weeks sometimes occur.

    The Wayback Machine is only allowed the domain name search service.

    GCWA
     

    The Library and Archives of Canada Act received Royal Assent on April 22, 2004. For the purposes of preservation it allows Library and Archives Canada (LAC) to collect a representative sample of Canadian websites. To meet its new mandate, LAC began to harvest the web domain of the Federal Government of Canada starting in December 2005. As resources permit, this harvesting activity will be undertaken on a semi-annual basis. The website data which is harvested is stored in the Government of Canada Web Archive (GC WA).

    At the time of its launch in Fall 2007, approximately 100 million digital objects (over 4 terabytes) of archived Federal Government website data was made accessible via the LAC website. The GC WA currently contains over 170 million digital objects and more than 7 terabytes of data.

The primary goal of collecting this knowledge is to make it as publicly accessible as possible, via the Internet and other means.

    The European Archive provides the full-text search and the domain name search service.

    UKWAC
     

    For many years, the web has become the information source of first resort. From online journals and scholarly material to news, travel and sport, the web provides unlimited and immediate access to enormous resources.

    Despite our apparent dependence on medium, however, very little attention has been paid to the long-term preservation of websites. Indeed, with the life of an average website estimated around 44 days (about the same lifespan as a housefly) there is a danger that invaluable scholarly, cultural and scientific resources will be lost to future generations.

    To address this problem, a consortium of six leading UK institutions(British Library, the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), the National Archives (UK), the National Library of Wales, the National Library of Scotland, and the Wellcome Library) got together in 2004 to explore the best way to collect and preserve web materials. The early development project for Web archives was called UK Web Archiving Consortium (UKWAC).

    UKWAC is currently using the Pandora Archive software developed by the National Library of Australia, but plans to move in 2008 to open-source software tools that utilise standards accepted by the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC).

    UKWAC is similar to other libraries, providing the variety of ways to search materials.

    Netarchive.dk
     

    A new legal deposit law came into force on the 1st of July 2005. As a result, The State and University Library and the Royal Library are now collecting and preserving the Danish portion of the internet.

    In practical terms, this means that the two institutions collect internet-material using so-called "harvesters" (web crawlers).

    Harvesters are programs of the kind used by search engines. Netarchive's harvesters scan the Web from a set of starting points (initially all domains under .dk) and follow links from them. The collected material is stored in a joint archive in which, for added security, all data is stored in both institutions. The archive is not publicly accessible and initially

    Tomba is research project of the XLDB group of Lasige at the Departmento de Informática da Faculdadade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa. Tomba researches technology aspects of archiving & preserving the Portuguese web pages.We developed a prototype test bed that, despite not providing guarantees of crawling and preservation of web contents, it is still provided as a free public service.
