Here’s a link to Web Archiving Roundtable survey results presented by John Bence and Anna Perricci of the SAA Web Archiving Roundtable at SAA 2014.
John and Anna designed and administered a survey to assess the needs and preferences of community members who would like to learn more about web archives. This presentation gives more information about the findings of the survey and the path forward to meet the needs described by those who responded.
Don’t forget to take our survey–we’re looking for ways to define roundtable activities and offerings in the future!
Are you or your employer involved in archiving web content? If so, you may be interested in the National Digital Stewardship Alliance’s (NDSA) 2nd biannual survey of U.S. organizations that are actively involved or planning to archive web content. The goal of the survey is to better understand the U.S. web archiving landscape: similarities and differences in programmatic approaches, types of content being archived, tools and services being used, access modes being provided, and emerging best practices and challenges.
The aggregate responses will be reported to NDSA members and summary results will be shared publicly, as was the case with the previous survey (see the final report here: http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/ndsa/working_groups/documents/ndsa_web_archiving_survey_report_2012.pdf).
Any U.S. organization currently engaged in web archiving or in the process of planning a web archive is invited to take the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ndsawebarchiving.
The survey will close on November 30, 2013.
