Weekly web archiving roundup for the week of October 10, 2015:
The Web Archiving Roundtable (with a shout out to Cliff Hight for suggesting this to us!) thought perhaps it might be logical for us to walk the web archiving walk by facilitating the preservation of the web resources we direct you to here every week through the weekly roundup. So you’ll see something a little different from here on out: links to both the live version of the resource, and also to the version that has been archived via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.
