Launching the Web Archiving & Preservation Webinar Series , Episode One will feature three speakers discussing Approaches & Tools - Large-scale and Collaborative.

This episode introduces approaches and tools for capturing web archives with scalable services or collaborative programmes. Speakers will address strategies for large-scale web archiving, where volume necessitates automation for efficient capture and search functionality. The webinar will also reflect on the limitations of automation and how it can be used realistically in different contexts. It also provides information on making use of national and international web archiving initiatives, such as the Internet Archive and the UK Web Archive.

Speakers on this webinar will each provide a 15 minute overview of approaches, tools, and services that support scalable web archiving for different sectors and different types of archives. 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).
