The Internet is a very ephemeral medium, where websites are constantly being created and disappearing. Risk collection tries to keep a copy of those websites that are at risk of disappearing.

This information often appears in the media or on the affected websites themselves, but in other cases it is the visitors themselves who are most aware of the situation. Without their invaluable help, the preservation of documentary heritage on the Internet for future generations would not be possible.

Also important for their preservation are websites that are going to be deeply redesigned, as previous versions provide a wealth of information from a particular period in the history of the Internet.

Whether your website is going to disappear or you know of one in this situation, do not hesitate to write to us at archivoweb@bne.es.
