Target Audience

This module is aimed at practitioners who wish to gain hands-on experience with the basics of risk management by engaging in a risk management exercise.

The beginner course in general aims to provide a complete beginner’s level training course in web archiving. There are no prerequisites for understanding beyond a general familiarity with archives, libraries or information management, meaning that the course is suitable for absolute beginners. The course is divided into eight different sessions that each focus on one specific topic. By the end of the course, participants will have learnt why archiving the web is important, what web archives are, what the main concepts and technologies are, who the users are and what their needs are, how to identify risks and benefits, what the main approaches to web archiving are, how to write a web archiving policy and how to make the case for web archiving.

How to Use and Customize These Materials

Several of the training sessions contain discussion questions which can be removed for brevity if needed. Likewise, there are many case study slides which could potentially be removed, or, more likely, changed for examples relevant to the context in which the training is being delivered. The risk management exercise this session contains a scenario based on a community archive, this might also be replaced if something more relevant to your context.
