Website collection - University of Virginia School of Law

 Collection
Identifier: RG-32-501

Scope and Contents

This collection contains copies of the University of Virginia School of Law's public website. On this site, the School shares content that documents its work and the experiences of its students, faculty, staff, and alums. This includes statistics, policies, program descriptions, summaries of services, links to affiliated organizations, news articles, videos, directories, marketing materials, short histories, and published research. While the website potentially reaches a broad audience, much of it is designed especially for the Law School's students, faculty, staff, and alums. Other content markets the School to applicants, donors, and employers.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Archivists at the University of Virginia's Law Library capture and archive the website annually.

Appraisal

The websites archived in this collection are not identical copies of the original sites. Instead, they are close representations shaped by the appraisal decisions of archivists.

Archivists strive to capture copies of the School of Law website that are identical to the originals. However, to overcome technological limitations and to allow for sustainable preservation, archivists make appraisal decisions that result in the creation of representative copies that function and look different from the originals. For example, when the website is too large to crawl and preserve as a single resource, archivists divide it into facets and crawl each part separately.

Accruals

The University of Virginia Law Library expects to add materials to this collection.
