UCAR/NCAR Harvested Websites
Scope and Contents
Since February 2013, the NCAR Archives has been crawling and harvesting UCAR/NCAR websites using Archive It. The harvested websites include most UCAR/NCAR webpages and associated images, video, PDF files, and other content. The collection also includes the U.S. Weather Commission, a group that brings together the American weather industry, state and local governments, and academia in an organized effort to urge Congress and the Executive Branch to undertake, promote, and support our nation’s portfolio of environmental observations and weather forecasting capabilities. In 2021 the organization began the second phase of an initiative to migrate all sites to a consistent format and move internal content to a single portal. For this internal, password-protected content a web-recorder software was used to capture material. This content is not browsable online but available by request from the archivist. This content is still considered internal-only.
The date ranges in this finding aid refer to the time period in which the websites were crawled. The content on the websites may reflect earlier dates.
Conditions Governing Access
There are no access restrictions on the material in the Archive-It platform: https://archive-it.org/home/ncar. Internal-only sites crawled beginning in 2021 are restricted to staff only.
Conditions Governing Use
Not all of the material in the collection is in the public domain. Researchers are responsible for addressing copyright issues.
Language of Materials
The Archivist identified top level UCAR/NCAR websites to crawl in order to capture all of the organizations departments, divisions, and governance. There is no weeding done on this collection; the crawler captures thousands of documents and pages and some may fall out of scope.
Website crawls occur quarterly; accruals expected.
