Archiving WWW Sites

Schedule of Events  

(all sessions to be held in Schaffer Library, 2nd floor)

Click here for a Prelimary Report on the workshop (added May 29)

Exercise: Because the origins of the workshop were in our believe that it is important to figure out a way to archive a college's WWW site, it would help if you looked carefully at your own web site and its parts, to determine which parts, if any, you think ought to be archived and preserved. This would include a consideration of how the various parts get into the site in the first place, and where they are coming from (external databases, for example, or college records). The nature of links, both within and outside of the library/college WWW site will become a critical problem, as will any aspects of the WWW site generated on demand by a database query.
