The Icelandic Web Archive

The Icelandic Web Archive has collected snapshots of Icelandic websites since 2004 in accordance with the Icelandic law on legal deposit from 2002. The collection is limited to .is-domains and a hand-picked selection of Icelandic websites within other top-level domains. Harvesting is done using the Heritrix web crawler developed by the Internet Archive and the Nordic national libraries. Access to the collection is open to all via a customized pyWb installation.

The archive is owned and maintained by the National and University Library of Iceland, a founding member of the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC).
