Accruals

New site crawls are accrued quarterly and semiannually.

Appraisal

Robots.txt (a piece of code designed to limit crawler activity within a website) was ignored with the permission of the content owner.

Crawl was limited to domains and subdomains of guerrillagirls.com, guerrillagirlsbroadband.com, and guerrillagirlsontour.com in order to remain within the collection scope and data constraints.

Scope and Contents

This series contains the websites for the three separate Guerrilla Girls groups formed after 2000, Guerrilla Girls, Inc., Guerrilla Girls On Tour, Inc., and GuerrillaGirlsBroadBand, Inc. These websites contain information on their upcoming lectures, book signings, performances, and workshops. They also contain summaries of performances and books, where their art is being exhibited, biographies of women artists that become the members' pseudonyms, videos of their performances, Guerrilla Girls printable mask, posters, current and past projects, and press.

Physical Characteristics and Technical Requirements

Due to technical or privacy issues, archived websites may not be exact copies of the original website at the time of the web crawl. Certain file types will not be captured dependent on how they are embedded in the site. Other parts of websites that the crawler has difficulty capturing includes Javascript, streaming content, database-driven content, and highly interactive content. Full-Text searches of archived websites are available at https://archive-it.org/organizations/567.
