New book on web archiving

Web Archiving, Masanès, Julien (Ed.) 2006, VII, 234 p., 28 illus., Hardcover

Julien Masanès, Director of the European Archive, has assembled contributions from computer scientists and librarians that altogether encompass the complete range of tools, tasks and processes needed to successfully preserve the cultural heritage of the Web. This book serves as a standard introduction for everyone involved in keeping alive the immense amount of online information, and it covers issues related to building, using and preserving Web archives both from the computer scientist and librarian viewpoints.

Practitioners will find in this book a state-of-the-art overview of methods, tools and standards they need for their activities. Researchers as well as advanced students in computer science will use it as an introduction to this new field with a hopefully stimulating review of open issues where future work is needed.

Some of the chapters:

  • Selection for Web Archives
  • Copying Websites
  • Archiving the Hidden Web
  • Access and Finding Aids
  • Mining Web Collections
  • The Long-Term Preservation of Web Content
  • Small Scale Academic Web Archiving
