Abstract

With the advent of the internet, content that institutional archivists once preserved in physical formats is now web-based, and new avenues for information sharing, interaction and record-keeping are fundamentally changing how the history of the 21st century will be studied. Due to the transient nature of web content, much of this information is at risk. This half-day workshop will cover the basics of web archiving, help attendees identify content of interest to them and their communities, and give them an opportunity to interact with tools that assist with the capture and preservation of web content. Attendees will gain hands-on web archiving skills, insights into selection and collecting policies for web archives and how to apply what they've learned in the workshop to their own organizations.
