The School of Law shares on the public website content documenting its work and community, including 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 School of Law's students, faculty, staff, and alums.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

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


Archivists strive to capture the School of Law website and preserve it in a state close to how it would have appeared to users when it was live. However, to overcome technological limitations and to allow for sustainable preservation, archivists made appraisal decisions that resulted in the creation of archived sites that function and look different from the originals. For example, when the School of Law website was too large to crawl and preserve as a single resource, archivists divided it into facets and crawled each part separately.

When using the web archives in this collection, researchers should know that these resources are not identical copies of the originals. Instead, they are close representations shaped by the appraisal decisions of archivists.


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