Online Course in Web Archives and Web Archiving


Graduate School, Arts at Aarhus University


Description:

More than 98% of the world's data are now digital. Large amounts of the data are represented on the web, where content is added, deleted and edited constantly and worldwide. Web archiving is the preservation of content, and may be done individually, as well as by large-scale web archiving initiatives. Contemporary studies in the humanities and social sciences need to make use of web archives where earlier documents or versions may be retrieved, and to preserve findings on the live web for future analysis and reference.

The course will provide an opportunity to build an understanding of how and why archived web content differs from analogous material (such as printed books), and to get significant hands-on experience with web archives and web archiving, based in a focus on your own specific research interests.

The course is offered by NetLab, a national digital research infrastructure, and a theme under DIGHUMLAB. Please find contact details at:
