The Icelandic Web Archive contains all web sites hosted on the Icelandic domain .is and many web sites hosted elsewhere that are in Icelandic or refer directly to matters of interest to Iceland.
Access to the complete Web Archive is open to the world except for web sites where the user must pay for access and web sites that for some reason are closed by the owners request.
The .is domain has been harvested since October 2004 and the policy is to harvest the complete .is domain three times a year. In addition selected web sites are harvested at least weekly and for national events like elections relevant web sites are harvested. Historical material (from the Internet Archive) covering .is from 1996 to 2004 is also preserved and made available.
