Digital libraries and World Wide Web sistes and page persistence

Web pages and Web sites,some argue,can either be collectde as elemenst of digital or hybrid libraries, or,as others would have it ,the WWW is itself a library.Web pages and Web sites can be collected and categorized.The paper explores the proposition that the WWWconstitutes a library.We conclude that the Web is not a digital library.Howevey,its component parts can be aggregated and included as parts of digital libryry collections.These,in turn,can be incorporated into"hybrid libraries."Based on a 120-week longitudinal study of a sample of Webdocuments,it appears that the half-life of a Web page is somewhat less than two years and the half-life of a Web site is somewhat more than two years.This paper examines how web documents can be efficiently and effectively incorporated into library clllections.This paper focuses on Web document lifecycles:persistence,attrition,and intermittence.The dynamics of change sets Web libraries apart from the traditional library as well as many digital libraries.This paper seeks then to further our understanding of the Web page and Web site lifecycle.These patterns challenge the integrity and the usefulness of librarise with Web content.However,if these dynamics are ucderstood,they can be controllled for or managed.
