Data Rescue Efforts

There are a variety of efforts being undertaken to rescue endangered digital content from Ukraine.

For cultural heritage data rescue, there is a cooperative effort called Saving Ukrainian Cultural Heritage. SUCHO is looking for volunteers to help with the identification of valuable web content as well as with the mechanics of web archiving themselves.

The Library of Congress is archiving government websites and web publications in Russia and Ukraine as part of its East European Government Ministries Web Archive.

A small number of sites are being captured for preservation as part of the Eastern Europe and Former Soviet Union collection in the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation’s Web Archiving program.
