Network resources, such as the web presence of the Technische Universität Ilmenau (TU Ilmenau), have long since established themselves as a central medium of public communication. They serve to provide information, to communicate services and to present themselves for the purpose of transparency and advertising. In view of these functions, these network resources are coming into the focus of libraries and archives, which are striving to preserve and provide access to these valuable information resources.
The Ilmenau University Archives has been securing the web presence of the Technische Universität Ilmenau since 2019. Due to the current information presented there on structure, study programs, research projects and personnel, etc., and the self-images and images of others communicated therein, the archive attributes to it a high source value for cultural-historical research as well as for current issues, which requires regular securing of the web presence and its permanent archiving. The goals of this web archiving are to preserve and make usable the network resources as well as to relieve the current web presence of outdated information.
