About this Blog
This blog was set up to support the work of JISC PoWR, a project funded by the JISC Integrated Information Environment Committee.
The blog helped to raise awareness of the importance of the preservation of Web resources. The main target audience for the blog were policy makers and practitioners working in institutional Web teams with responsibilities for the management of Web content.
