The California Digital Library has developed a unique online service called the "web archiving service" which allows librarians and scholars to have access to web content from critical sites that have been captured and preserved over the past few years. The publicly archived documents can be browsed or searched courtesy of a helpful search engine. The archives currently available include those that deal with the 2007 Southern California wildfires, the 2010 Winter Olympics, and the world of International Development Organizations. Visitors can also build their own archives of websites and documents. The "Information for" box on the far right hand side of the homepage gives a link for "WAS Curators", which provides a multitude of documents and videos for new curators to aid them in building their archive. Moving along, users will find that some of the documents include "Collection Planning", "Rights Management", and "WAS Administration Features". The videos explain some of the curator features available, such as how to "Display and Analyze Capture Results" and "Evaluating Sites for Capture".
