Who Should Preserve The Web?

Posted by Brian Kelly on March 16th, 2009

Members of the JISC PoWR Team will be participating at next week’s JISC conference, which takes place in Edinburgh on 24th March 2009.

In the session, entitled “Who should preserve the web?” a panel will

“Outline the key issues with archiving and preserving the web and will describe practical ways of approaching these issues. Looking at the international picture and the role of major consortia working in this area, the session will also offer practical advice from the JISC Preservation of Web Resources (PoWR) project on the institutional benefits of preserving web resources, what tools and processes are needed, and how a records management approach may be appropriate.”

If you are attending the conference we hope you will attend the session and participate in the discussions. If you are attending one of the other parallel sessions you can meet the UKOLN members of theĀ  JISC PoWR team at the UKOLN staff. And if you haven’t bookeda place at the conference (which is now fully subscribed) feel free to participate in the discussions on the online forum.

    I would encourage folk to use the forums for thoughts or questions even if they are attending the conference. It’s a packed programme and getting some debate going before the session starts helps make best use of the time.
