A virtual visit to Luxembourg
We would have loved to hold the IIPC General Assembly and the Web Archiving Conference at the National Library of Luxembourg (BnL) and welcome everyone to our new building as well as the Luxembourg-City. However, it is more important to stay safe and we hope that the online events provide an opportunity for a wide audience to learn more about web archiving and our community.
You may not be able to join us in person but you can virtually explore Luxembourg! During this virtual event, we would like to invite you to explore the BnL's online resources, learn more about Luxembourg and the partners of the Luxembourg Web Archive.
