Description

This collection represents web crawls of Tufts University websites and student organization websites conducted, under contract, by the Internet Archives using their tool Archive-It. The first focused crawl was conducted on November 2, 2009. The web crawls are managed directly in Archive-It. Beginning in 2015, student organization websites were added to the crawls. Only websites of student organizations that are officially recognized by the University are crawled.

Arrangement

This collection is organized into two series: Tufts University web crawls and Student organizations web crawls.

Biography/History

Tufts Digital Collections and Archives began crawling Tufts University websites in 2009 to document the University's web presence. Since then, crawling has become increasingly robust and comprehensive, with more websites added to the collection, including those of student organizations.
