Viewing those missing web pages

Have you ever googled a name or group only to find that the page you want has been changed or removed?

I learned a cool trick to solve that problem from one of my students, Amanda Seef.

Use Internet Archive, put in the URL and voila!

It worked for me. I had googled a person’s name, and the page with all his biographical information had been removed. I put the URL for that page into Internet Archive and up the page came.¬† I printed it out and had the information I needed.

Thanks, Amanda! It just goes to show that teachers can learn a lot from their students, too.
