Web Archiving: How to Achieve Effective Quality Assurance

5 Jul 2023 at 1:00pm - 5 Jul 2023 at 3:30pm UTC

This online event will take place on the 5th of July at 1pm UTC/2pm BST(click here for your local time)

The DPC's Web Archiving and Preservation Working Group is pleased to invite you to the latest in a series on the main steps of a web archiving workflow. Previously, we've examined how to crawl or capture web pages and this time around we're going to examine how to quality assure those captured web pages.

Quality Assurance is a challenging and complex topic. How much QA is appropriate or cost effective? What issues are a priority to check for, identify and rectify? How can software tools be employed to aid in the process? These are just some of the questions we will explore. A range of presenters will share their workflows for quality assurance, giving the audience an opportunity to see how different sized institutions tackle this challenge. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, allowing you to learn from the community and contribute your thoughts, requirements and expertise.
