The Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation is pleased to announce the launch of the Web Archive of Independent News Sites on Turkish Affairs. Developed by librarians within the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation, the archive documents and preserves online news outlets about Turkey that are not controlled by the state. These sites provide opposing views and news about events unfolding in Turkey on topics that may not be covered by state news outlets, such as: migration, terrorism, the environment, LGBTQ issues, wars, insurgencies, and on. Together, the websites collected and archived strived to provide a well-rounded perspective of the many different people who live within the borders of the Republic of Turkey.

Web archives preserve vulnerable information that may disappear from the live web and capture the ways in which selected websites have evolved over time. The Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation’s Web Resources Collection Program is a collaborative collection development effort to build curated, thematic collections of freely available, but at-risk, web content in order to support research at participating Libraries. Learn more about the program and explore additional collections here.
