Following on from Episode One on large-scale approaches, this episode examines alternative methods of archiving web content, focusing on smaller scale tools and strategies that suit particular content types or more focussed collecting.

Episode Two: Approaches & Tools - DIY & Microservices provides an overview of how to do web archiving yourself, whether you’re an archivist for a small organisation, a research data manager looking for ways to support web-based research outputs, or a web curator at a large institution looking for a tool for a specific job. It will introduce different tools for different needs and demonstrate how those tools can be applied to relevant content types. Speakers will provide high level demos of a few handy tools and services and suggest possible ways of integrating open source tools into workflows. Overall, this episode will present some methods for getting started on best practice for archiving web content yourself.

Speakers on this webinar will each provide a 15 minute overview of approaches, tools, and services that support doing web archiving yourself or through small, targeted services. These short talks will be followed by a period of questions and discussions, including speaker responses to some set questions to help highlight different approaches and contexts.

More about this Series

This series of five webinars provides an overview of several core themes of work in the capture, management, and preservation of web content, from institutional webpages to social media datasets. Each of the five episodes will investigate one or more important components of web archiving through the experiences of practitioners. Invited speakers will share the knowledge and insight they have acquired along the way through case studies and practical examples. These presentations will set the stage for a wider discussion, where attendees can pose questions and share experiences of their own.

The webinar series is hosted by the Digital Preservation Coalition as part of the Web Archiving & Preservation Working Group (WAPWG).
