The archive contains
In addition to the large scale domain crawls, the Luxembourg Web Archive also operates targeted crawls aimed at specific subjects or events. The resulting collections aim at preserving a maximum amount of information on a certain subject over a limited period of time. Other collections explore a certain theme or area of society and are supposed to grow over time.
There is a sea of information to be explored and stories to tell.
Let us know what topics should make it into special collections.
What are the subjects and events worth exploring and saving?
2017 LOCAL ELECTIONS
The first targeted event crawl run by the Luxembourg Web Archive.

As a direct continuation of the local elections harvests, the national elections event crawl builds on the experiences and information gained from the year before. With a smaller number of candidates, different priorities have changed.
2019 EUROPEAN ELECTIONS

FESTIVALS IN LUXEMBOURG
Music, cinema, culture, traditions, food, drinks, summer, winter, fall or spring… We are looking to collect the websites of all festivals in Luxembourg.
