This one day workshop was aimed at all those interested in issues relating to Institutional Web resource preservation. Through presentations and discussion group sessions it will introduce the concept of Web preservation, consider its importance and discuss the technological, institutional and legal challenges it presents. It will also look at ways you can begin to preserve your Web site, both in the short to medium term, and permanently.

The workshop was intended to be interactive and encourage open discussion. Lunch was provided and participants received copies of the workshop handouts.
