ELECTION 2002 WEB ARCHIVE
The Election 2002 Web Archive is a selective collection of nearly 4,000 sites archived between July 1, 2002 and November 30, 2002. The initial March 4th, 2003 release of the Election 2002 Web Archive was comprised of over 1100 Web sites produced by congressional and gubernatorial candidates. The current update (May 2004) expands access to the remainder of the collection and includes citizen, civic and advocacy, government, political party, press, public opinion and miscellaneous Web sites related to the 2002 elections. The archived collection is available to researchers onsite at the Library of Congress. Additionally, parts of the collection are available for public access on the Internet. (See FAQs for more information.) Additional materials will be made available as the collection is processed.
The Election 2002 Web Archive is part of a continuing effort by the Library's MINERVA Web Preservation Project to evaluate, select, collect, catalog, provide access to, and preserve digital materials for future generations of researchers.
