PUBLIC ARCHIVING

Accessible archives for everyone.

We can make websites and social media archives accessible for all with an indexed and fully searchable portal for public access.

“MirrorWeb has brought some outstanding technical capabilities - in particular with data migration, cloud computing, search and new ways of harvesting and collecting content.”

John Sheridan, Digital Director, The National Archives

What is a public archive?

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of a public archive as an online destination that you can access to search and retrieve digital information that's been archived.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.

The why behind public archiving

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.

Take a look at the MirrorWeb Platform.
