Online News Around the World is a collection of news website snapshots attempting to capture roughly simultaneous, broad but shallow cross-sections of global online news. The aims of the collection are: to raise global awareness of the critical need for web archiving and of the importance of preserving born-digital news in particular; to create a rich multinational and multilingual collection that will engage researchers; to archive content from countries and regions not currently being archived by IIPC members; and to serve IIPC members as a testbed for identifying technical challenges and solutions for archiving online news. Blog articles and handouts at IFLA News section meetings reached out to potential "seed" website nominators. The seed URLs were nominated by IIPC member institutions as well as by contacts at non-member institutions. Seeds were first crawled in October 2018--the IIPC Content Development Group will explore the possibility of maintaining and expanding the seed list and periodically recrawling the websites.
