Web Archiving at the British Library

Helen Hockx-Yu discussed the key processes of web archiving and provided an overview of the British Library’s web archiving activities. She discussed how the current selective archiving practices are changing to meet the requirements of archiving the UK web at scale, enabled by forthcoming non-print Legal Deposit legislation.

Previously, she was project manager of the Planets project, a four-year project co-funded by the European Union under the Sixth Framework Programme to address core digital preservation challenges.
