Web Archiving at the Library of Congress

Since 2000 the Library of Congress has been working to collect and preserve web sites. Their project had been called MINERVA, now it is known as The Library of Congress Web Archives (LCWA). They have archived websites around themes such as the United States National Elections, the Iraq War, and the events of September 11. They have helpful technical information that provides information on how they harvested websites and which metadata fields they used.
