  • Digital Conversations: The Scholarly Use of Web Archives, Moderated by David Gauntlett.  This is a recording of a conversation that discussed many topics including: how we capture the changeability of websites, what tools and skills do we need to use web archives in research, whether we need an international project for web archiving and whether the term web archive is holding back archiving of the web. It was recorded at the British Library on 26 September 2013. http://www.bl.uk/whatson/podcasts/podcast154924.html

Also coming up soon will be a weekly web archiving roundup–news and announcements relevant to the web archiving community, presented here each Wednesday afternoon.  You can submit items to be included in the roundup by sending them to Benn Joseph, Web Liaison (b-joseph@northwestern.edu), or just post to the discussion list.  If you’re not already on the list, you can join by clicking the “Join/Leave” link here.

Happy 2014!
