(7 March 2013) The Digital Preservation Coalition is offering members a preview of its latest Technology Watch Report ‘Web Archiving’.
This report is aimed at anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge of web archiving before they embark on a web archiving initiative. It will appeal mainly to organizations or individuals who are relatively new to web archiving, though existing practitioners will also find value in the way it surveys the entire landscape.
William Kilbride of the DPC commented, ‘This is the fifth Technology Watch Report we’ve released in the last two years. Previous titles have been very popular, including such topics as Preserving Email, Preserving Digital Sound and Vision, Intellectual Property Rights for Preservation and Digital Forensics. Maureen Pennock’s concise, authoritative and informative contribution makes the series an increasingly important reference collection for anyone interested in securing a lasting digital legacy. I’m very grateful to Maureen for her work and I am certain that readers will be too.’
The report is available as a preview to DPC members at: http://www.dpconline.org/component/docman/doc_download/826-webarchivingpreviewmarch2013 (1100KB login required). If you’re not yet a member of the DPC you can get a preview by joining: http://www.dpconline.org/join-us. It will be released to the public in the second quarter of 2013.
