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.
