Our community comes together annually to share experiences and present solutions during the annual General Assembly and the Web Archiving Conference.
Registration for the GA and WAC
Registration for the Web Archiving Conference is open until 24 May!
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.
WEB ARCHIVING COMMUNITY: MATURING PRACTICE TOGETHER
Preliminary programme is now available.
Harry Verwayen is Executive Director of the 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.
Dr. Anat Ben-David is a senior lecturer in the Department of Sociology, Political Science and Communication, and co-founder of the Open Media and Information Lab at the Open University of Israel. Focusing on the intersection between New Media and Science and Technology Studies, Ben-David researches the geopolitics of the web and online platforms.
Ben-David published several articles and book chapters on web history and web archive research, in which she used the archived web to study the histories of national webs of countries in transition, such as Palestine, the former Yugoslavia, Kosovo, and North Korea. Methodologically, Ben-David’s research attempts to develop computational methods and tools for advancing the scholarly use of web archives by social scientists.
