Weekly web archiving roundup for the week of October 8, 2014:
- “Guidance on building archivable websites“, from Nicholas Taylor. A major challenge for web archivists is the low visibility that downstream archiving has on upstream web content creation. And, yet, deliberate and inadvertent architectural decisions made by web content creators strongly impact the ease or difficulty with which their websites can be captured and faithfully re-presented.
- ““Ce projet un peu feu”: Web Archiving Art Resources with NYARC”, by Walter Schlect. Internship report from grant-funded partnership between the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC) and Pratt Institute called M-LEAD TWO.
- “Integrating the Live and Archived Web Viewing Experience with Mink“, by Matt Kelly. The Chrome extension Mink (short for Minkowski Space) queries all the public web archives (via the Memento aggregator) in the background and will display the number of mementos (that is, the number of captures of the web page) available at the bottom right of the page.
