On May 8th the Internet Archive and 2convert.com integrated their services allowing users of the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine to create pdf documents of archived web pages. The service is useful for Wayback Machine users who need a local pdf record of any given web page stored in the Wayback Machine’s database of all web pages from 1996 to today.
To use the pdf conversion service, check out the Advance Search Page of the Wayback machine at http://web.archive.org/collections/web/advanced.html. Once you are there you need to enter a URL, click "List all pages that match the search criteria" and then check the "Provide links to a service that will convert a version of the web page to the PDF format." The results page will show you PDF icons with all of the search results, click a pdf icon and it will walk you through the conversion process for the date listed next to the icon.
This is the first large-scale implementation of 2convert’s web page to pdf technology (based on Linux, KDE, & Konqueror) and we are very interested to hear from users about their individual conversion experience. Please try the service and send an e-mail to email@example.com with your comments, criticisms, and suggestions.
