Please join your colleagues for a moderated panel and open discussion about COVID-19 web archive collections, their scopes, management, and access as they continue to grow. We welcome your experience, questions, and ideas.
Web archivists have already collected 35+ TB of web data from thousands of sites about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its effects on their communities, research areas, and institutions. Archive-It web archiving partners will introduce how they selected web data for curation and preservation, the networks that they use to cover the vast scope of the pandemic and its impacts, and their ambitions to enhance end user access to a new and important global archival resource. Guest speakers will include: Zakiya Collier (Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York Public Library); Margaret Huang (Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries); and Alex Thurman (Columbia University, International Internet Preservation Consortium).
