A system for collecting and archiving legal deposit copies of web resources. The HAW was established in the September 2004.
Crawl quality is directly determined by the technology used when creating a web homepage.
During domain and thematic crawls our crawler is assigned the IP address 126.96.36.199 and it identifies itself as Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; heritrix/3.4.x; +http://haw.nsk.hr/faq). During selective archiving the crawler is assigned the IP address 188.8.131.52 and it identifies itself as Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; SrceDAMP/4.2.2; +http://haw.nsk.hr/faq). The crawler has been set to ignore the robots.txt protocol.
Please set your website to allow our crawler access to your website content.
If you detect any unexpected activity please contact us at email@example.com and indicate dates of access, crawler identification and describe the problem(s) in as much detail as possible.

Using the Registration form, online publishers/authors of web resources notify the NSK of the existence of a resource on the web. By doing so, the publisher meets the requirement to deposit a legal copy of the resource, and the resource can subsequently be processed and archived.
