Scope and Contents

The University of Virginia Law Library made 40 crawls of the School of Law website. The files resulting from each crawl contain content representing a significant facet of the website. These facets include admissions, academics, research, alum services, library services, student life, faculty profiles, giving and fundraising, academic centers, and class profiles. Together, these resources richly document the School of Law's work and its public face.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Archivists at the Arthur J. Morris Law Library crawled the School of Law's website between March 2023 and June 2023 using the Browsertrix crawler and the ArchiveWeb.page application.

Appraisal

Archivists decided to divide the capture of the School of Law website into 40 crawls because they determined that the site was too large to capture in one crawl. As much as possible, they tried to break the site into self-contained facets that reflected the creator's divisions. Ultimately, however, archivists were responsible for defining the facets and marking the boundaries between different kinds of content. Their appraisal decisions are recorded in text configuration files that are preserved with the web archive files.

The following resources published on the School of Law website in Spring 2023 were not included in this collection: staff and faculty directories, the Scholarship repository, the news archives, the media archive, library exhibits, and library databases. Archivists crawled much of this content, but deposited it in other collections to facilitate sustainable access and preservation.
