After a brief hiatus, the Web Archiving Roundup is back this month. Here are a few quick links on recent web archiving topics:
- How the Victoria and Albert Museum collected WeChat: “How do you collect an app? What is the thing you’re actually collecting? And what for?”
- Ashley Blewer asks, “How do web archiving frameworks work?” “If you wish to explain how web archiving works from a technical standpoint, you must first understand the ecosystem.”
- Collecting social media a bite at a time at the National Library of New Zealand: It “worries us that some of our documentary heritage may be lost if we don’t start collecting content” from social media.
- Can machine-learning models successfully identify content-rich PDF and Word documents from web archives? With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the University of North Texas aims to find out.
- Rhizome to Host National Forum on Ethics and Archiving the Web: March 22-24, 2018, in conjunction with Documenting the Now and the New Museum in New York City.
- Is your organization involved in web archiving, or in the process of planning a web archive? If yes, and your organization is based in the United States, you have until November 17 to take this year’s NDSA Web Archiving Survey!
