New API to search Arquivo.pt

Last updated on October 1st, 2018 at 04:42 pm

On February 23, 2018 Arquivo.pt launched a new version called Zeus.

This new version includes a new programming interface (Arquivo.pt API) and improvements in the mobile interfaces.

Arquivo.pt API: the oficial API

The new application programming interface, called Arquivo.pt API, allows you to search and access information preserved automatically. The purpose of this new API was to aggregate functions and information that were provided through the various APIs developed previously. The search can be done by URL or by terms, and a JSON object with the response items is returned.

This new API can be useful to compete for the Arquivo.pt Prizes.

We preserved the Portuguese Local Elections of 2017

Last updated on January 23rd, 2018 at 10:15 am

Arquivo.pt performed 2 web crawls of information related with the Portuguese Local Elections of 2017.

We appealed the community to contribute with suggestions of relevant Web pages so that we could preserve them.

The 2 crawls occurred during and after the campaign period, using the list of 410 Web pages suggested by the community and 13 887 web pages found automatically using search engines.

The result was an archive of 2 265 887 Web resources (360 GB).

Among the preserved web pages are the official sites of the candidates, news, blogs and articles with personal opinions about the elections.

The Arquivo.pt respects an embargo period of 1 year, and for that reason this collection will only be available by the end of 2018.

Meanwhile, you can consult the preserved pages about the previous elections of 2013, such as:

We would like to thank all the volunteers that collaborated with this initiative.
