Collection Development Tools
Cost Effectiveness: WAS 3.8.3
Web archivists are often charged with the task of building a comprehensive archive of a web domain, such as a state or university. The research needed to identify every website in a large domain can be quite demanding and time-consuming. The WAS collection development tools will dramatically reduce the effort needed to comprehensively identify a large web domain. The tools extract data from an exploratory capture, listing all related sites, and enabling the archivist to filter the related site list as needed. One-click addition is provided from the related site report to quickly build an archive directly from the collection development tool.
