You can search all of the UNCW Web Archive or choose an individual collection of websites to limit your search. Enter keywords at the top of the page, underneath the UNCW William Madison Randall Library logo to begin your search. Please be patient as this can be slow!
Any results for your search will be displayed, sorted by the closest match. Results include archived websites in the “Sites” Tab, if any, and matches from the full-text of pages in archived sites in the “Search Page Text” tab.
Advanced searching can be done to the left of the search results, where additional search terms and facets can be combined.
This is an example of a search for "Thirsty Tome," a library event. The phrase was found in the text of several webpages. The search was in the entire UNCW Web Archive, but all returned hits came from the "UNCW Websites" collection.
You may also enter a specific website, which can be useful if looking for previous versions of a known web page on the live web or a defunct website. In the same search bar at the top of your page, enter your URL and click the search button. For this search, there are results under both tabs: "Sites" and "Search Page Text." Note that search results are in two collections--"UNCW Websites" and "Journals, Publications, and Magazines."
