It's easiest to think of a public archive as an online destination that you can access to search and retrieve digital information that's been archived.
For public sector organisations, archives are created to ensure information is preserved for both historical significance and as a matter of public record. The National Archives is a perfect example of a public archive.
For businesses, online content is often retired to form of public archive, preventing 'link rot', providing web continuity and ensuring users never find broken content.
We capture, store and make our memories accessible so that we can learn from them in the future. Archiving does the same thing. It enables us to capture documents and records of historical and cultural significance.
Organisations use public archiving for precisely this reason and the digital world has vastly accelerated this need. Millions upon millions of web and social media content are published every day, and the average webpage has a lifespan of just 90 days before it's removed or replaced.
We've developed the world's most advanced digital public archiving solution - all through the MirrorWeb Platform.
With our intuitive search portal, you can search and filter through a vast collection of web pages, social media posts, images and documents quickly and easily. To learn more about how we archived the UK Government's digital presence, take a look at our case study here.
