University of Michigan Web Archives

Description

The University of Michigan Web Archives is dedicated to the documentation and preservation of University of Michigan online resources of unique, essential, and enduring value. These archived websites complement manuscript collections and record groups held at the Bentley Historical Library and include content created by academic departments, administrative units, research groups, cultural institutions, student groups, faculty members, and the athletic department at the University of Michigan. The University Archives and Records Program (UARP) has selected these websites to document academic, administrative, research, athletic, public service, and social activities and reflect the evolving nature of the university's web presence.
