Web 2.0 technologies are creating new opportunities for social networking. Some records created by these technologies have archival or research value requiring their preservation. However, there are many challenges associated with this process. This session will explore how some archives have made an effort to preserve Facebook, Twitter and YouTube records so they are accessible to researchers.

Birds of a feather will be flocking together once again! Lori Donovan (Internet Archive) and I will be at the Midwest Archives Conference on April 19th, 2013 to lead the Internet Archive’s second Web Archiving Birds of a Feather session. We are asking participants to complete a brief survey prior to the session in order to give us an idea of participants’ interests and web archiving experience. The survey can be found here. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!
Midwest Archives Conference (program)
April 19th, 2013
12:15 – 1:15 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.
A very useful document created by Emily Reynolds. Provides descriptions of various use cases and links to examples. I’ll definitely be using this in future presentations! –Tessa
