The functionalities that are important to the users of web archives range from basic searching and browsing to advanced personalized and customized services, data mining, and website reconstruction. The author examined ten of the most established English language web archives to determine which functionalities each of the archives supported, and how they compared. A functionality checklist was designed, based on use cases created by the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC), and…

An Overview of Web Archiving
This overview is a study of the methods used at a variety of universities, and international government libraries and archives, to select, acquire, describe and access web resources for their
Web Archiving as a Service for the Sciences
TLDR
The main goal of a project newly approved by the German Research Foundation is the development and implementation of a cooperative service model that will support other cultural heritage institutions in their web archiving activities and facilitate the build up of a distributed German scientific web archive.
The evolution of web archiving
TLDR
The results show that during the last years there was a significant growth in initiatives and countries hosting these initiatives, volume of data and number of contents preserved, which indicates that the web archiving community is dedicating a growing effort on preserving digital information.
The Many Shapes of Archive-It
TLDR
This work focuses on the collections within Archive-It, a subscription service started by the Internet Archive in 2005 for the purpose of allowing organizations to create their own collections of archived web pages, or mementos, and proposes using structural metadata as an additional way to understand these collections.
Web Archive Services Framework for Tighter Integration Between the Past and Present Web
TLDR
This dissertation focuses on the access methods for archived web data to enable users, third-party developers, researchers, and others to gain knowledge from the web archives, and builds ArcSys, a new service framework that extracts, preserves, and exposes APIs for the web archive corpus.
Information search in web archives
TLDR
A temporal-dependent ranking framework that learns and combines ranking models speci c for each period was devised and demonstrated their superiority over the state-of-the-art in WAIR.
