Consortium members started to archive selected websites in 2005 using PANDAS software, developed by the National Library of Australia (once appropriate permissions have been obtained from website owners) relevant to their interests. For example, the Wellcome Library focussed on collecting medical sites, whilst the National Library of Wales collected sites that reflect life in contemporary Wales. The British Library had a broad policy to collect sites of cultural, historical and political importance to the UK.

dbo:abstract
  • Consortium members started to archive selected websites in 2005 using PANDAS software, developed by the National Library of Australia (once appropriate permissions have been obtained from website owners) relevant to their interests. For example, the Wellcome Library focussed on collecting medical sites, whilst the National Library of Wales collected sites that reflect life in contemporary Wales. The British Library had a broad policy to collect sites of cultural, historical and political importance to the UK. The Consortium itself was wound up in 2010, and the role of UKWAC as a focus for web archiving in the UK has been absorbed by the Digital Preservation Coalition and its Web Archiving and Preservation Task Force. The work of selective archiving continues, and the results are publicly available in the UK Web Archive, and in the public archives of the Consortium's former members. (en)
