WebCite is an on-demand archive site, designed to digitally preserve scientific and educationally important material on the web by making snapshots of Internet contents as they existed at the time when a blogger, or a scholar cited or quoted from it. The preservation service enables verifiability of claims supported by the cited sources even when the original web pages are being revised, removed, or disappear for other reasons, an effect known as link rot.

Sometime between 9 and 17 July 2019, WebCite stopped accepting new archiving requests.[2] As of February 2021 it continues to not accept new archiving requests, but continues to serve existing archives.
