Web Archiving Beginners Workshop 2018
Slides, speaker notes, handouts, and worksheets from the beginners’ web archiving workshop led by SAA Web Archiving Section steering committee members at the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) on May 30, 2018 are provided for reuse 'at home'. Speaker materials introduce web archiving basics, case studies, tools, and policies. Handouts provide sample strategies and tools for creating a web archive. A short worksheet guides participants to apply what they have learned to articulate their first web collecting needs, goals, and resources. Released under a CC BY-NC-SA license. Specific learning objectives include: understanding the nature and history of web archives as born digital collections; how to craft a mission-driven collection development policy for web archives; how to select among the available acquisition tools and descriptive standards to best support their patrons’ and stakeholders’ needs; and best practices for long-term preservation and access to these resources.
Workshop originally given by Karl-Rainer Blumenthal (Internet Archive) and Samantha Abrams (Ivy Plus Library) for the Metropolitan New York Library Council.
