The DPC is delighted to announce registration is now open for the webinar 'Outreach & Awareness Raising'. This webinar is the fourth episode of the Web Archiving & Preservation Webinar Series for DPC Members and Supporters and will take place on 5 March 2020 at 15:00 GMT. 

Following on from Episode Three on integrating web archives into existing collections, this episode addresses strategies for engaging researchers and other users and raising awareness about how to find and use archived web content.

While methods for capturing and archiving the web have improved, significant use of these materials by researchers is still relatively nascent. Many archive and library users aren’t even aware that web archives exist. Speakers for this webinar will discuss the importance of outreach and raising awareness and present strategies for advocacy. Talks will also cover methods for identifying users and gaining better knowledge of how they use and interpret archived web content. These topics will help craft a message for stakeholders about the value and importance of web archives.

Speakers on this webinar will each provide a 15 minute overview of outreach and awareness raising and on understanding user groups. 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.

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