Maria Praetzellis is Web Archiving Program Manager for the Internet Archive


Internet Archive Community Webs cohort members at Internet Archive Headquarters, San Francisco, CA

We are known for many things at the Internet Archive: a place to play long lost arcade games, listen to old 78 rpm records, or, most recently, finding that old MySpace track “accidently” deleted from the live web. Most people know us by the Wayback Machine, as we are the oldest and largest publicly available web archive.

Full Member Lightning Videos

As part of our Connecting the Bits process for 2019, the DPC's Full Members have shared 3 minute Lightning Videos which outline:

  • 1 recent success story from their organization,
  • 1 key digital preservation challenge likely to surface in the next 5 years, and
  • 1 notable example of upcoming work (which may or may not be affected by that challenge).

From these videos, DPC staff will then extract this year’s themes and present them back to our four Sub-Committees as a set of discussion topics. Once the Sub-Committees have distilled the themes into a set of proposed activities for the DPC's program in 2019 - 2020, these will be presented for comment to all members through a set of Members Lounge, Connecting the Bits Specials on 13th June and 14th June.

Josh Sendall is Research Data Manager at Lancaster University Library (the Library)


When you’re enabling Research Data Management (RDM) best practice it’s easy to get caught up in the systems and services. To focus on processes - on planning, storing, transferring, archiving and sharing digital objects. And yet, behind every Data Management Plan, behind every dataset, there’s a person making a contribution to scholarship.

At Lancaster University every few months we convene 'Data Conversations.' These are two-hour events where current Research Data Management issues are discussed. We start with an informal free lunch for all attendees, followed by a mixture of short talks and panel discussions. Bringing our researcher community together in this relaxed and friendly environment continues to provide a dynamic and innovative platform. What's more, it's a chance to meet researchers from different disciplines and at different career stages — what's not to like!
