British Library Web Archiving Visit

The British Library UK Web Archive team (https://www.webarchive.org.uk/ukwa/) is developing a strategy for archiving project websites from Higher Education Institutions. Staff from the Web Archive would like to learn more about University of Leeds requirements in this area. We are hosting a meeting on Level 13 of the Edward Boyle Library (Mon 30th October, 11.00-1.30pm) and would like to make sure that several academic disciplines are represented in the discussion. The meeting with be an opportunity to learn about what the UK Web Archive (run as part of the British Library) can offer, to discuss whether researchers would like to archive websites and, if so, how this can be made an easy process. The discussion will cover technical aspects of web archiving, IPR considerations and website lifecycle – what should happen at website set up and what happens if a website is ‘retired’. The UK Web Archive is interested in good practice for new websites but also how to approach our legacy websites at the University of Leeds. It would be great if you were able to join us to share your own views and questions about web archiving. If you’re not free, do you have colleagues who might be interested?
