HRWA renovation


The Human Rights Web Archive @ Columbia University

is a discovery interface to Columbia University's collection of archived copies of select human rights websites created by non-governmental organizations, national human rights institutions, tribunals and individuals.

Harvesting of websites using Archive-It began in 2008 and has been ongoing for active websites, with new websites added to the collection regularly. This interface was launched in 2012; in 2018 it will be undergoing changes neede to update its software and reconfigure how it provides access to archived content.

During and after the renovation of the interface, browsing and full-text searching of the Human Rights collection will remain available via the Archive-It collection page.
