Here’s your Web Archiving Roundup for March 5, 2018:
- Read up on the Web Integrity Project — an initiative of the Sunlight Foundation, dedicated to monitoring changes to government websites and ‘holding our government accountable by revealing shifts in public information and access to Web resources, as well as changes in stated policies and priorities.’ (Archived link.)
- When Good Links Go Bad: Link Rot in Ebooks: as Teresa Elsey writes, ‘As the web continually changes and reorganizes itself, the URLs included in ebooks eventually become outdated and stop working.” One solution for ebook developers? “… When their links rot, … point to an archive of the page rather than the page itself.” (Archived link.)
- A new report on the scholarly use of web archives from Maria-Dorina Costea and NetLab. (Archived link.)
