    Sites selected for inclusion in the collection are scheduled for capture on a recurring basis, usually at least once per year.

    Physical Characteristics / Technical Requirements

    The websites were captured using HTTrack, a free offline browser utility. HTTrack downloads a website from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure allowing you to open a page of the mirrored website in your browser, browse the site from link to link.

    Scope and Contents note

    The materials consist of Stanford University websites captured by University Archives staff. Included are the websites of Stanford's seven schools, their departments, and many school-affiliated labs and research centers; independent research centers and institutes reporting to the Dean of Research; interdisciplinary programs; and administrative units overseeing academic affairs, faculty development, student life, research, public affairs, human resources, and other areas of the university. Also included are sites providing information on campus events, such as Commencement and Parents' Weekend; sites established to disseminate information on specific initiatives, such as the Stanford in NYC proposal of 2011; and publications, such as the university's Annual Report and news stories produced by University Communications.
