It is my pleasure to announce the completion of archiving the website HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory), which ran from 2006–22. As the website migrates to a new home on Humanities Commons, a large amount of older content will not be relocated. Considering how so much of this content contains valuable insights and that the website has served as a historical record of developments in and around academia, it makes much sense that the website be archived and housed at Duke University Digital Collections. The archive entails three components:
- A dynamic version of hastac.org (2006–22) that can be recreated from its original content management system code, database, and files. Private user data has been erased.
- A static HTML version of hastac.org (2006–22) which allows archive visitors to experience the site immediately and as visually intended – on any browser.
- A directory of content (20,000 items) with author and date information, containing static HTML versions of all posts ever made.
I enjoyed exploring the richness HASTAC, am thankful for the support I received from my teammates, and am happy to see the site transmute into these new forms.
