This research presents a search behaviour characterization of Web archive users. Detailed statistics about the users’ sessions, queries, terms and clicks were analised from search logs.
Following the survey performed to draw a picture of web archiving worldwide, we created a Wikipedia page named “List of Web Archiving Initiatives”.
We hope that the published information can be collaboratively kept up-to-date by the community and translated to different languages.
