Curating special collections: workflows, bottlenecks & solutions

A pre-GA workshop to learn more about how curators and web archivists approach special collections.

About this event

The main idea behind this warm-up workshop is to share IIPC members’ workflows on building special and thematic collection and to brainstorm to identify and prioritise topics to focus on in a follow-up workshop.


  • Presentations: 50-60 minutes
  • Breakout sessions: 45 minutes
  • Wrap-up and the next steps: 15 minutes

Presentations include:

  • Library of Congress: Melissa Wertheimer
  • National and University Library in Zagreb: Karolina Holub and Ingeborg Rudomino
  • Royal Danish Library: Allan Christophersen & Anders Klindt Myrvoll
  • National Library of Scotland: Eilidh MacGlone


IIPC members: web curators, web archivists and curators who nominate content and/or curate special web archive collections (e.g. emerging formats, event collections, special topics, soliciting public nominations, appraisal, tools used for different stages of the process). This event is also for any IIPC members who do not currently create special collections and would like to learn about the best practices in the community.

The event is finished.
