The collection and archiving of scientifically relevant websites is so far a vastly neglected sphere of activity in German libraries. To counteract this looming loss and providing researchers with permanent access to websites, the Bavarian State Library (BSB) has built up a web archiving workflow already more than two years ago. The main goal of a project newly approved by the German Research Foundation (DFG) is the development and implementation of a cooperative service model. This service will support other cultural heritage institutions in their web archiving activities and facilitate the build up of a distributed German scientific web archive. With this project the Bavarian State Library wants to improve both quantity and quality of scientific web archives and promote their use in the scholarly context.
