Is your website Archive Ready?

What is ArchiveReady?

An online tool which evaluates if your website will be archived correctly by web archives, such as the Internet Archive.


Who is it for?

Web professionals who need to check if their websites are archive ready.
Web archive engineers who need to evaluate target websites before harvesting and ingestion.
Students who need to learn more about digital archiving.


How much does it cost?

ArchiveReady.com is completely FREE for personal use. Large scale use of the ArchiveReady.com API as well as technical and scientific support is available on a fee. Please contact the author to learn more.

Why bother?

Because not all websites are archive ready and this may result in invalid web archives and ultimately in information loss.


How does it work?

ArchiveReady analyses your website (i.e. HTML, Images, CSS, JS, Sitemaps) and performs complex evaluations in order to calculate Website Archivability from a set of Archivability Facets: Accessibility, Cohesion, Metadata & Standards Compliance.
