Search Engine Archival Data and Information

The Internet Archive offers a subscription service for entities that want to archive special collections and make them searchable, either publicly or privately. Newly added, is a full-text search feature that not only queries the public special collections but also collections in the Internet Archive. While the index isn't as current as the index for the Wayback Machine, it's now possible to search archived Web pages as well as other archived file formats by keyword. Searching and displaying the results is free of charge.

Internet Archive: U.S. Government Documents
The Internet Archive maintains a collection of U.S. government documents. Currently, there are more than 2500 documents available in full-text in various formats. You may browse the collection by subject or keyword or search it by keyword. There is also an RSS feed for monitoring additions to the collection.

Wayback Machine
The Internet Archive lets you search for archived Web pages by existing or former URL. You may limit search results by archived date or file type. You may also eliminate duplicates or merge aliases (the same Web page under different addresses).

Access to Archival Databases (AAD) System
The National Archives and Records Administration makes available almost 500 databases containing mostly older information about people or businesses. Find, for example, databases for conducting genealogy research or for finding records pertaining to labor unions. Technical note: The site requires session cookies and Javascript. It does not function as well in Firefox as it does in Internet Explorer.

The University of North Texas Libraries and the U.S. Government Printing Office join forces to provide access to the Web sites and electronic publications of now defunct government agencies. For example, the United States Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (ACIR) officially closed its Web site during April 1996. CyberCemetery maintains the site as it appeared when it closed and added information about the agency as well as digital copies of many of its publications.
