View Old Web Pages with the Wayback Machine

Wish you could go back in time to view a Web page as it looked five years ago? You just might be able to with the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. This amazing resource has archived 40 billion web pages from 1996 to a few months ago. Of course, not every page is archived - but you might be surprised at what you will find.

Simply enter in the URL you wish to check, and you will be presented with a list of dates for which an archive of the page is available. Take a look at the results for the UW Law Library home page. It's amazing how far Web design has come!
