Details

Every four years, beginning in 2008, libraries and academics work feverishly to preserve the previous U.S. administration's publicly accessible .gov and .mil sites and social media pages, statistics, pdfs and reports from http/https content. New U.S. administrators have no mandate to retain or save information. Site pages become updated with new material and prior research gets taken down. There are thousands of pages of government content to find and preserve as they currently exist. This is why we need your help. You can read more about the project here and here. Stop by the Legal Research Center and sit at a Save-a-Thon laptop. Spend two to thirty minutes adding URLs and grab a snack on your way out.
