The National and University Library in Zagreb is a member of the IIPC since 2008. The NSK, in collaboration with the University of Zagreb University Computing Centre (Srce), developed  a system for capturing and archiving  Croatian web resources  – the Croatian Web Archive (Hrvatski arhiv weba – HAW) in 2004. The Library is developing the Croatian Web Archive (HAW) with the aim of collecting and preserving Croatian cultural and scientific heritage from the web.

It is a privilege  to host the 2019 IIPC GA and WAC in the year that HAW is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Zagreb.

Keynote speaker

The National and University Library in Zagreb and the International Internet Preservation Consortium are delighted to announce the first keynote speaker – Harry Verwayen, Executive Director, Europeana Foundation, the operator of the European platform. Europeana supports museums, galleries and archives in digital transformation by making their digital collections available as widely as possible so that people can find and use them. For work, for learning or just for fun. Their work is guided by creative collaboration, supportive teamwork and the idea that sharing and reusing cultural content can positively transform the world. Prior to this Harry worked at the Amsterdam based think tank  Knowledgeland where he was responsible for business model innovation in the cultural heritage sector. Harry holds a MA in History from Leiden University and has worked over ten years in the Academic Publishing Industry.
