(from the Internet Archive’s Archive-it group: Announcing the first ever Archive-It US Government Shutdown Notice Awards! )
Congress has caused the U.S. federal government to shut down and important websites have gone dark. Fortunately, we have the Wayback Machine to help.
Many government sites are displaying messages saying that they are not being updated or maintained during the government shut down, but the following sites are some who have completely shut their doors today. Clicking the logos will take you to a Wayback Machine archived capture of the site. Please donate to help us keep the government websites available. You can also suggest pages for us to archive so that we can document the shut down.
