Internet Archive Integration
One of the pressing challenges for digital journalism is content and links disappearing from the internet. To help make sure you don’t lose access to links relevant to your investigation, the Check team is pleased to introduce yet another addition to the enhanced archiving services through Keep: We have integrated with Archive.org to always keep a backup link for the media item you added to Check.
Once you add a link from a social media account to your project on Check, Keep starts to back up this media item. Visiting the media item link after a couple of minutes, you will see an annotation added to your media item’s page after archiving to archive.org.
We are pleased to work with the Internet Archive to enable this feature, one we know is critical for teams working with misinformation online. Interested in enabling Archive.org backups for your team? Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you work in digital media and want to try out Check as a way to streamline and coordinate your social news gathering and verification workflow, request a free trial of Check Pro here.
