Capture, Permanently Archive and Download Any Web Page for Free with Archive.is

Capture, Permanently Archive and Download Any Web Page for Free with Archive.is | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Archive.is is a free web service which allows you to capture, store and archive permanently any web page you submit. 


Archive.is permanently stores a double copy of your selected web site: one that is an image snapshot of the page, and another which contains the full text of it. Archive.is also provides a download link that contains a zipped copy of all the files making up your selected page, and which can be opened offline in any web browser. 


Archive.is can save most any type of web page including Facebook pages and it allows you to easily search and see all of the pages already saved for a certain domain.


There is no registration or login required and you don't need to install anything. 


A free dedicated bookmarklet makes it easy to capture and archive any web page you happen to be on.



If you are looking for a free, simple and easy to use service to archive any web page permanently, I recommend Archive.is.


Free to use.

Great tool to quickly save web pages, including social media pages with hashtags.  Don't forget to grab the bookmarklet and move it onto your browser, too!

This could be handy to use with students looking at how internet based media can change and a story be altered. use this tool to preserve current ate of a story at a particular day/time.

Permanent Archival of Author Content Soon Possible Thanks To Harvard Perma.cc

Permanent Archival of Author Content Soon Possible Thanks To Harvard Perma.cc | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Broken links are everywhere. Perma helps authors and journals create permanent links for citations in their published work.
Robin Good's insight:



Perma.cc is an upcoming web service that aims to help authors and journals create permanent archival copies of their online published content.


Way too often in fact, due to a multitude of reasons, not only content gets moved and relocated to new sites, becoming more difficult to find but in many others it is permanently deleted or lost.


To comfort your doubts that this is a true and tangible issue, you should check the work being carried out by Kendra AlbertLarry Lessig and Jonathan Zittrain, who are completing a study of link rot, available at http://papers.ssrn.com/abstract=2329161


Link rot is the phenomenon by which material we link to on the distributed Web vanishes or changes beyond recognition over time.


Believe it or not half of the links in all of the Supreme Court opinions, don't work anymore.


In this context "the Harvard Library Innovation Lab has pioneered a project to unite libraries so that link rot can be mitigated.  We are joined by about thirty law libraries around the world to start Perma.cc, which will allow those libraries on direction of authors and journal editors to store permanent caches of otherwise ephemeral links."


The Internet Archive has provided its powerful archiving engine to support this effort and Cloudfare its distributed CDN.


The official tagline of the upcoming site reads: "perma.cc helps authors and journals create permanent archived citations in their published work"


Here is essence what you should expect from it: "Perma.cc allows users to create citation links that will never break.


When a user creates a Perma.cc link, Perma.cc archives a copy of the referenced content, and generates a link to an unalterable hosted instance of the site.


Regardless of what may happen to the original source, if the link is later published by a journal using the Perma.cc service, the archived version will always be available through the Perma.cc link."


N.B.: While anyone will be able to go to Perma.cc and archive any web page this resource is designed for researchers, authors and journals. In this light Perma.cc downloads the material at the designated URL and provides a new URL (a “Perma.cc link”) that can then be inserted in a paper. 


After the paper has been submitted to a journal, the journal staff checks that the provided Perma.cc link actually represents the cited material. If it does, the staff “vests” the link and it is forever preserved. Links that are not “vested” will be preserved for two years, at which point the author will have the option to renew the link for another two years.



My comment: Can't wait to test it. We need these type of archival tools like oxygen. It's not only important that we organize and curate what is important from the web, but it is essential that we also take care in preserving it for the longest possible time.




Free and open to all (soon).

Pro Social Bookmarking, Permanent Content Archival and Link-Sync with Pinboard

Pro Social Bookmarking, Permanent Content Archival and Link-Sync with Pinboard | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Pinboard is a social bookmarking service which allows you to easily save and organize any number of links, with no limits on text descriptions. Pinboard is characterized by having a no-frills, simple interface, by being very speedy and reliable and by being able to import, sync and export all of your links easily.


Pinboard integrates also a powerful web caching and indexing feature available to "pro" accounts ($25/year) which allows you to keep a full cached and searchable copy of any bookmark you save.


Advanced edit tagging, filtering and bundling features make it easy to oganize and find links even inside very large collections.

Links saved can be set to be public or private.


All of the bookmarks saved inside Pinboard can be easily exported in a standard file format. A set of basic APIs is also available.


You can import all your existing bookmarks from Delicious, Google Bookmarks, Diigo, Firefox, Safari, and many other sources by following the instructions on the howto page.


A very useful feature called Tab Sets allows to quickly save all of your currently open browser tabs to Pinboard having the unique advantage of being able to re-open them even if you're on another machine or in a different browser. 


N.B.: The site has a unique and now proven business model and is entirely self-funded. Ad-free.


My comment: Excellent bookmarking service for anyone in need of a no-frill, reliable and fast tool. The archiving feature is particularly valuable as well as the auto-syncing with multiple services (Instapaper, Read It Later, Twitter. Delicious).


The service has a one-time fee of around $10.
