This workshop will look at web archiving as tool for collection building and preservation. UTL Archive-It collections will be showcased. We will present:
Different components of web archiving activities including selection, scoping, metadata and quality assurance
New developments and challenges of the activities.
Students will have a chance to web archive websites through a Heritrix-based crawler and gain a basic understanding of the goal, workflow and limitations of web archiving.
Bring a laptop with WAIL downloaded on it, https://github.com/N0taN3rd/wail/releases/tag/1.1.0 , before the workshop.
