GPO Announces Release of “2016 End of Term Presidential Web Archive Containing Over 200 Terabytes of Websites and Data
Between fall 2016 and spring 2017, End of Term (EOT) Web Archive partners conducted outreach and archiving efforts to preserve and document the U.S. Government web presence at the end of the Obama Presidential term.
Due to an increased public interest in preserving U.S. Government web content and press regarding the project, the EOT Nomination Tool saw almost 11,400 nominated.
In addition to this, through collaboration with DataRefuge, Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI), and other efforts, there were over 100,000 additional web pages or datasets nominated.
The 2016 EOT crawl contains over 200 Terabytes of websites and data, which includes over 350 URLs/files.
Access to this content is available through the EOT Web Archive project page, which contains over 50,000 records available for searching and browsing, or through the Internet Archive Collection page.
GPO is proud to be a partner in this important initiative.
