Subject: [Air-L] Using the Archive.org for data capture?

Hello wonderful list,

I am currently establishing a research protocol that will rely on the
wayback machine (archive.org) to gather caches of pages from 1-2 years ago.
Is there research on the wayback machine as an effective mode of data
capture? Are there any questions about its validity? Have you read
published work using the wayback machine? What concerns have other scholars
raised about using it?

Thanks for your time! Have a great day,

Dan Fielding
