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.
These websites are accessible for purposes of education and research. We have indicated what we know about copyright and rights of privacy, publicity, or trademark. Due to the nature of archival collections, we are not always able to identify this information. We are eager to hear from any rights owners, so that we may obtain accurate information. Upon request, we will remove material from public view while we address a rights issue.
This collection is organized into two series: Tufts University web crawls and Student organizations web crawls.
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.
Web crawls or harvests are conducted on regular schedules depending on how often a website is updated. Access is available through the Internet Archive and the Wayback Machine.
This collection is processed and open for research. The finding aid is updated on an annual basis to add information about crawls and websites that may have been added or removed from the collection.
