Research Services

Research Services of the Internet Archive include:

  • New data-driven forms of research, analysis, and digital humanities scholarship to further demonstrate the value of web archives
  • Increase use of archived web collections by expanding how these collections can be accessed and queried by users, researchers, and scholars
  • Allow institutions of any size access to collection-derived datasets whose creation requires complex processing and substantial computing infrastructure
  • Provide the data and access necessary to support new tools, interfaces, visualizations, and other R&D for collecting, managing, and using web archives

ARS is an ongoing program working to expand the ways that users can access and study web archives. Feedback and input from the community is welcomed. Email us at
