Internal Advocacy for Web Archives

Many web archives programmes, and wider Digital Preservation programmes, struggle to promote the use of their collections by their own staff. This online event will focus on techniques for raising awareness of our web archives and consider how to advocate internally for them. It will look at organizations that have developed strategies to engage members of staff in different departments and will share their experiences. Following a series of short presentations, there will be a roundtable discussion and Q&A. This online event is a collaboration between the DPC’s Web Archiving and Preservation Working Group and the International Internet Preservation Consortium’s Training Working Group. This event will be useful for web archive practitioners and managers who have the challenge of promoting their web archive within their own organization. 

Speakers will include:
Ben Els, National Library of Luxembourg
Jason Webber, The British Library
Melissa Wertheimer, Library of Congress

The event is open to members of DPC and IIPC. Email info (at) for more details on how to register

There will be a limit of 2 attendees per organization.

Presentation recordings and slides are available now for IIPC members:
