Web Archiving – Social Media – Communication Strategies

The explosive growth of the Internet and of social media has enabled an unprecedented era of knowledge sharing, creativity, innovation, and connection. It has also created new challenges for institutions whose mission it is to document and preserve contemporary knowledge and culture. Web archiving is the process of collecting portions of the World Wide Web, preserving the collections in an archival format, and then serving the archives for access and use. In this conference, international experts will share their experiences and projects concerning the role and the challenges of archives and of national or international networks in the digital world. How do they face up to the problem of long-term access of websites and social media? How do they succeed in developing a web archiving strategy? How do the internet and social media affect the work of archives?
