New School web archive collection

 Collection
Identifier: NS-10-01-01

Scope and Content of Collection

The New School Web Archive Collection consists of New School websites captured using the Internet Archive's web archiving software, Archive-It.

The websites collected are continuous with material held by the New School Archives in analog and other digital formats.

The websites collected here document public relations, events such as exhibitions, and public-facing publications. With the exception of The New School Labor Relations webpage, there are, as of 2018, no administrative sites contained herein.

Contents include websites related to university news and updates; critical, arts, and literary journals associated with university departments; exhibitions held at, or affiliated with, The New School; and websites documenting labor organizing and relations on campus.

Due to the size of the collection, the techniques and tools of web harvesting, and the evolving nature of the Internet, some websites have been crawled more comprehensively than others and are represented more faithfully than others.
