Online Course in Web Archives and Web Archiving
Online course. Participation from work or from home, and at convenient time. Exact course starts are agreed between participants and course instructors, and the course may be offered more than once per year for different participants. More than 98% of the world's data are now digital. Large amounts of the data are represented on the web, where content is added, deleted and edited constantly and worldwide. Web archiving is the preservation of content, and may be done individually, as well as by large-scale web archiving initiatives. Contemporary studies in the humanities and social sciences need to make use of web archives where earlier documents or versions may be retrieved, and to preserve findings on the live web for future analysis and reference.
