*Sustainable Web Archiving at Scale: An Introduction*Virtual Workshop |
Thursday, April 15th & Friday, April 16th | 2:00-5:00pm EST
As cultural production and communication have moved online, the need for
archivists to document history in real time has become increasingly clear
and urgent. Yet the scale and complexity of online information and media
can be daunting, even as web archiving tools and practices continue to
evolve. And while large institutions are able to devote staff to keeping
pace with new technologies and their attendant ethical concerns,
small-to-mid sized organizations frequently rely on archivists who already
handle many other responsibilities for this work. How does one design a web
archiving program that meets the demands of our time with the resources at
This two-day workshop is designed to provide an introduction to web
archiving fundamentals and tools for archivists seeking to initiate web
archiving programs within their organizations and communities that are
grounded in ethical practices and scaled to their resources. Attendees will
learn about current projects and advances in the field, and receive
practical guidance on drafting collecting policies based on institutional
mission and capacity, as well as hands on instruction using open source
tools. Participants should come away with a firm grounding in the
principles and tools needed to sustainably advocate, plan for, and
implement web archiving in their institutions. No previous experience in
web archiving is required.
This web archiving workshop is being hosted by the Digital Preservation
Outreach & Education Network (DPOE-N) in partnership with the Pratt
Institute School of Information. It is being offered *tuition-free*, thanks
to generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Applicants must be located in the United States or US territories. The

wait to apply. Successful applicants will be notified by Thursday, April 1.
