Select the title of a collection to access the related list of archived websites.


Human rights

Human rights, the inalienable rights of all members of the human family, i.e. the economic, social, cultural and all other specific rights indispensable for human dignity and free personal development include equality before the law, legal protection against any discrimination, the right to freedom of thought and religion, right to education and to freedom of opinion, right to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media, right to peaceful assembly and association, right to freedom of movement, right to work and to free choice of employment, as well as the right to own property, to inherit, to seek asylum, etc.

Considering the great frequency of human rights-related public and online content, the collection offers a wide array of diverse and relevant resources on this topic. Collected as the result of the Archive’s cooperation with the Croatian Library Association’s Committee on Government Information and Official Publications, one of whose aims was to promote this type of content among librarians, the resources include websites and other content provided by government authorities, bodies of local government, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and various human rights organisations, as well as content published on news sites, and are equally available to researchers, professionals and the wider public.

Resources in the collection were harvested as part of a crawl performed on 22 November 2022, resulting in 135 collected URLs, totalling 253 GB of data.

Bees, life, people

The collection was created through the Archive’s cooperation with the Ivanić-Grad City Library, subject specialists of the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) and the Ivan Švear Secondary School in Ivanić-Grad as part of Citizen-Enhanced Open Science in Southeastern Europe Higher Education Knowledge Hubs, or CeOS_SE Project, a research project aimed at including European citizens in pan-European efforts focusing on open science. As a result of this successful cooperation, the collection makes available numerous resources on these as small as important inhabitants of our planet.

War in Ukraine (2022)

On 24 February 2022, the Russian Federation launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, mounting missile attacks on a large part of Ukrainian territory, including its capital, Kyiv. Responding to the Russian aggression, the European Union, United States and other countries soon started providing Ukraine with economic and military assistance, at the same time imposing harsh sanctions against Russia. A great many civilians were killed in brutal Russian attacks and several million people left their homes in Ukraine fleeing the aggression.

In order to collect as wide a range of online resources on this topic as possible, the Archive invited the wider public to take part in gathering relevant content. Considering the continuing Russian aggression, new content is still being collected and will soon be added to the collection.

Resources in the collection were harvested as part of a crawl performed on 22 April 2022, resulting in 162 collected URLs, totalling 86 GB of data.

Climate change (2022)

Responding to the recent raising of public awareness of climate change and of the need to urgently act in order to alleviate its impact, marking World Meteorological Day and fulfilling its task with regard to the role libraries must take in promoting resources on this pressing issue, the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) and the Croatian Web Archive, the Library’s User Services Department, Official Publications Collection and NSK European Documentation Centre jointly prepared this collection.

The collection includes carefully selected varied online content, ranging from websites, through weather portals and resources related to ongoing climate change-related projects and programmes, to publications issued by bodies of central and local government and international organisations such as proposals, drafts and programmes focusing on environmental protection in relation to climate change, in which context UN Agenda 2030 and its 17 sustainable development goals, especially Goal 13, particularly stand out.

Resources in the collection were harvested as part of a crawl performed on 18 March 2022, resulting in 133 collected URLs, totalling 99 GB of data.

COVID-19

Globalna pandemija koronavirusa (SARS-CoV-2) i bolest COVID-19 posljedica je nove bolesti dišnih puteva koja se prvi put pojavila krajem prosinca 2019. godine u Wuhanu, u kineskoj provinciji Hubei, a vrlo brzo se proširila na ostatak svijeta. Pandemija je uzrokovala niz globalnih, regionalnih i lokalnih društveno-gospodarstvenih posljedica.

Zbirka sadrži web-stranice i news portale koji pokrivaju teme o podrijetlu koronavirusa, načinu širenju zaraze, svjedočenja oboljelih, službene evidencije o broju žrtava i preporuke liječnika, političara i znanstvenika i stručnjaka. Također, pokriva medicinske, znanstvene, društvene, ekonomske i političke aspekte ove pandemije.

Kako bi se sadržaj prikupio što sveobuhvatnije, Hrvatski arhiv weba uključio je i širu javnost da dostavi važne sadržaje na ovu temu. Budući da je pandemija i dalje u tijeku, sadržaji se i dalje prikupljaju te će se zbirka uskoro proširiti s novim.
