The Internet Archive <https://archive.org/> invites applicants to a daylong workshop Digital Scholarship and the Web: An Introduction to Data Analysis and Instruction <https://archive-it.org/blog/digital-scholarship-and-the-web/> held on March 15, 2023 alongside the ACRL 2023 Conference <https://acrl2023.us2.pathable.com/> in Pittsburgh, PA.
Every day, significant digital information production occurs globally, much of it across the web (e.g., news, government information, e-poetry, electronic literature, and more). As a publication medium that is both a primary source and a networked container of primary sources, the web presents challenges of scale and complexity for those that seek to integrate it in research and teaching. During this full-day workshop participants will be introduced to web archives as a primary source, gain familiarity with web archive research use cases and how libraries support them; and acquire hands-on experience creating web archive collections and computationally analyzing web archives using Archives Research Compute Hub (ARCH) <https://webservices.archive.org/pages/arch>.
This full-day, Internet Archive staff-led workshop is free, however registration is limited, and with generous support from the Mellon Foundation, participant travel stipends (up to $1000) are available to offset air and/or ground transportation, parking, two nights’ lodging, and food costs incurred to participate in the workshop.
Please submit an application <https://form.jotform.com/230055711324141> to attend the event. All are welcome to apply; however, space is limited and the priority deadline for all applications is January 27, 2023. If your application is accepted, we will follow up with you no later than February 3, 2023.
