Project Lead: IIPC Wayback Open Source Project

Background
The mission of the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) is to acquire, preserve and make accessible knowledge and information from the Internet for future generations everywhere, promoting global exchange and international relations. One of the ways in which it does this is by fostering the development and use of common tools to enable the creation of Internet archives. The Open Source Wayback Machine (OSWM) is one of these tools. Originally developed by the Internet Archive, a founding  member of the IIPC, it is a replay tool for web archives stored in ARC or WARC file  formats. It is unique to the web archive context and is a critical infrastructure component for most of the web archiving community. The Wayback OS project is Java based and
can be operated as a standalone service and/or via integration with tools used to archive resources published to the Web, perform quality assurance routines and/or access archived web resources such as NetArchiv suite, Web Curator tool, Archive-It, WAS, and other institutionally specific service and tool implementations.

The IIPC has over 40 members comprised of national and regional libraries, research institutions and commercial web archiving providers from all over the world.
