Best Practices Exchange 2016 – Web Archiving in Academia

Web Archiving in Academia: Collection Strategies Beyond the Institutional Domain

Presented by Kevin C. Miller, University Archivist at the University of California, Davis.

With the Internet Archive turning 20 this year, and its subscription service Archive-it turning 10, this is an excellent time for reflection on the current state of best practices for web archiving. This presentation will examine and analyze web archiving strategies and collection development approaches by a sampling of academic and cultural heritage institutions, highlighting trends and noting opportunities for collaboration. using the UC Davis Library’s web archiving program as a case study, this presentation will further probe the potential for web archiving to highlight and preserve the teaching, research, and service activities of university faculty and staff.

Recorded on November 1, 2016 in the Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building in downtown Sacramento as part of the 2016 Best Practices Exchange. BPE is an ‘un’-conference, an informal gathering of practitioners with a focus to manage, preserve, and prove access to digital government information. The Exchange provides an opportunity to discuss real-world experiences, including best practices and lessons learned.

The technical solutions around web and social media archiving continue to advance. While traditional web archiving has a more established history, social media platforms are bringing new challenges to this space. Panelists will discuss the similarities and differences in these closely related, yet uniquely different, spaces and how our technical approaches to archiving them can move forward in a more collaborative and interoperable way.

Caitlin Birch, Rauner Special Collections Library, Dartmouth College – “Research Applications of Web Archiving in the Social Sciences”

The increasing centrality of the Internet and other technologies in the daily lives of people globally has generated a massive windfall of potential new data sources for social scientists. This one day workshop, hosted by the Neukom Institute, the Department of Sociology, and the Quantitative Social Science Program at Dartmouth College, will advance the goal of developing new and innovative data sources and analytic strategies for the social sciences. The workshop covered a broad range of substantive topics, from politics to gender, and employed a wide range of methods including social media analysis, the use of UAVs, and morphometric analysis. In bringing together a diverse group of scholars committed developing new data sources, this workshop will advance the goal of fostering interdisciplinary connections that will carry forth outside of Dartmouth after the conclusion of the workshop.
