Web Archiving Event at the Bentley Historical Library

We have been working to get the word out about the presentation at the Bentley Historical Library later next week on Web Archiving.

Aren’t sure what “Web Archiving” is but want to learn about how organizations are attempting to preserve the giant portion of our cultural legacy that is now housed on the World Wide Web? Then this just may be an event for you!

The focus of the talk will be on harvesting and curating web collections.

The Digital Curation team from the Bentley will be giving the talk on how they approached their web projects, setting up a quality assurance process and other issues/lessons learned from their experience. The staff will also demo the California Digital Library tool for the class. Please note that space for this event is limited! If capacity is reached, you will be contacted by email if you are waitlisted.
