The Duke University Archives identifies and preserves administrative, legal, fiscal, and historical records that have enduring value for the Duke community and makes those records available in accordance with policies approved by the University's Board of Trustees, administration, and faculty. The University Archives’ gathering of web content via Archive-It is an extension of the overall mission.
Much of the material documenting university activity is made available online by university offices, and includes items that previously had been transferred to the archives as printed material. The content may also include new forms of media not previously available in a print format, such as blogs, social media, and audio and video files. In addition to the web content from University administrative offices and academic departments, the University Archives will also collect content about or related to Duke University if determined to have significant permanent research value.
The University Archivist is primarily responsible for the collection content, and welcomes suggestions for inclusions. The Electronic Records Archivist is responsible for managing the technical aspects, including harvesting, storage, preservation, and access.
