Join us at 11AM Pacific, 2PM Eastern on Tuesday, May 22, for Describing Web Archives, a live webinar with Archive-It partners and Internet Archive staff. Presenters will review the state of descriptive practice and recommendations for web archivists as compiled by the OCLC Web Archiving Metadata Working Group, introduce their own case studies of providing access to web archives through archival finding aids and bibliographic records, and take your questions.
This webinar is part of the Archive-It Advanced Training series, but no Archive-It experience is necessary and we welcome all to attend. If you have wondered about how best to describe web archival collections for patron access and use, then this webinar is for you! Register here.
