Events postponed until September 2020

• Given the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, BAnQ and the International Internet Preservation Consortium have agreed to postpone the IIPC’s annual meeting and Web Archiving Conference (WAC), scheduled to take place in Montréal in May. Our primary concern is for the health of the participants and the general public.
• The annual meeting and conference are postponed until September 28 to 30, 2020. The speakers and participants who have already registered will be contacted shortly.
• Existing registrations remain valid. However, if participants would like to cancel their registration, they can write to to request that their fees be refunded.
• The Organizing Committee regrets the inconvenience caused by this unfortunate and exceptional situation.

IIPC Web Archiving Conference

Draft programme

Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) is proud to welcome the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) General Assembly and the Web Archiving Conference (WAC) in Montréal, from September 28 ̶ 30, 2020. The General Assembly will take place September 28 (#iipcGA20) and will be followed by the WAC on September 29 and 30 (#iipcWAC20).

The events are organised in partnership with Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and University of Toronto Libraries.

At once national library, national archives and public library, BAnQ collects, preserves and provides widespread availability to Québec heritage materials. As a member of the IIPC since 2009, BAnQ celebrated ten years of harvesting Québec Web sites. Located in Montréal, Québec’s metropolis and a university research hub, BAnQ is delighted to have the privilege of hosting the IIPC.

We look forward to introducing you to everything BAnQ is!
