New England Archivists Conference: Web Archiving “Birds of a Feather” Session

I am coordinating a Web Archiving Birds of a Feather session (on behalf of Archive-It and the Internet Archive) at the New England Archivists Conference this spring.  If you plan on attending, please fill out the survey (link below).  Hope to see you there!  –Tessa

Date: March 22, 2013
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

What do we talk about when we talk about web archiving? Find out at the Web Archiving: Birds of a Feather meeting, and network with your colleagues dealing with some of the same issues that you are!  Web archiving is a relatively new area in organization’s collecting and curatorial activities and there are sometime more questions than answers.  In this session we’ll have a brief introduction to web archiving basics, and then an open discussion on some of the use cases, challenges, lessons learned and success stories with those currently involved in web archiving projects or programs. Please bring your questions, comments, and web archiving quandaries for discussion.

We ask that interested participants complete a brief informational survey before the session so we will have a better idea of topics to cover.
 
Any questions please contact Tessa Fallon (tessa@archive.org)
