Web Archiving is an emerging and growing field in Information Science and Technology; not even out of its second decade yet playing a critical role in the documentation and preservation of the human experience portrayed on the Internet. With an estimated 72 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute and over 300 million images added to Facebook daily the Internet has by far become the preferred method for documenting ones life; traditional mediums such as journals and scrapbooks have given way to blogs and Flickr accounts. This article explores the history, issues—such as appraisal, metadata, and copyright—uses, and the developing lexicon of web archiving while examining current tools and services available in the field.
