Abstract  Section 108(h) has not been utilized by libraries and archives, in part because of the uncertainty over definitions (e.g. “normal commercial exploitation”), determination of the eligibility window (last twenty years of the copyright term of published works), and how to communicate the information in the record to the general public. This paper seeks to explore the elements necessary to implement the Last Twenty exception, otherwise known as Section 108(h) and create a Last Twenty...

The WARC (Web Archive) file format is intended to supersede the "ARC" file format and is now used by many libraries and archives, including the Internet Archive.   This is the specification in draft form which might still be useful because it is available for free.   ISO standards, unlike Internet Engineering Task Force standards, cost money .
