Afghanistan Ministry of Economy website with Karima Faryabi (recorded August 17, 2021)

On August 15, 2021 the presidential palace in Kabul was taken over by the Taliban, consummating the fall of the regime that had been in place for 20 years, following the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

The community of Web archivists, through the Content Development Working Group – International Internet Preservation Consortium, was challenged to record the Afghan sites, given the risk that they would disappear with the new regime.

No time to lose when it comes to preserving the Web

Arquivo.pt reacted quickly, launching an automatic content search focused on .af domain sites and on international media news about the ongoing events.

On August 17, the websites began to be recorded.

1800 website addresses from Afghanistan (ending in .af) and 500 media news stories from around the world were used.

The addresses, URLs or “seeds” were obtained through automated search using the Bing Search API and immediately put into recording.

Content available to know Afghanistan’s history

As a result of the collection carried out, more than 400 Gigabytes of information became available at Arquivo.pt, which anyone can use for research in the most diverse areas.

The main contribution of Arquivo.pt to the community of Web archivists was the use of the automatic search that allows a quick reaction in the recording of Web contents in imminent risk of being lost.

Open dataset about cryptocurrency

Since 2008 the cryptocurrency market has revolutionised the world by innovating and expanding into other areas (e.g., finance and art). However, with this rapid expansion, many projects are created every day, giving rise to a wide and varied range of websites, technologies and scams. Markets follow financing stages and it is during an initial stage of euphoria that more projects are created.

We believe that as the cryptocurrency market  stabilises, projects/websites are disappearing because funding diminishes or runs out.

Arquivo.pt initiated a new web archive collection that preserves web content that documents Cryptocurrency activities.

This work produced a new open dataset with information documenting each cryptocurrency project, including it is original URLs and links to the corresponding web-archived version in Arquivo.pt. The information sources selected to create this dataset were:

We believe that by creating this new dataset related to cryptocurrencies and by preserving all the corresponding web content, it has the potential to originate innovative scientific contributions in several areas such as Economy or Digital Humanities.

Researchers who want to carry out studies on the Cryptocurrencies dataset and need earlier access to the collected contents can contact Arquivo.pt.

Last updated on November 28th, 2022 at 10:55 am

The winners of the Arquivo.pt Award 2022 were announced by the Público newspaper on 22th July 2022, the official communication partner of this edition, which awarded an honorable mention to the best work based on its historical web content.

22 applications were received.

The award ceremony took place during the Commemorative Session of the World Science Day: the excellence of research in Portugal, on November 24th, at the Teatro Thalia, in Lisbon.

1st place – “Arquivo do Parlamento”

The winner of the 10 000 euro prize was the work “Parliamentary Archive” developed by Tiago Santos.

“Parliament Archive” is a web application that aggregates news and opinion articles extracted from Arquivo.pt based on Parliament.pt’s open data.

For example, a user can search on a political personality and get speeches, news and other publications that Arquivo.pt has preserved.

2nd place – “Classificação automática de artigos estigmatizantes de doenças mentais”

The 2nd prize of 3 000 euros was awarded to the work “Automatic classification of stigmatizing articles of mental illness“, authored by Alina Yanchuk, Alina Trifan, Olga Fajarda and José Luís Oliveira.

This work developed a methodology for the automatic classification of stigmatizing mental illness articles, present in Portuguese online news newspapers, using Artificial Intelligence.

For example, a news article that uses the term schizophrenia associated with a news article about political life is classified as stigmatizing. Using automated processes, this work allows to identify thousands of news items and draw the attention of the media and society to the stigmatization of mental illnesses.

3rd place – “Arquivo Público”

The 3rd place winner received a prize of 2 000 euros and was awarded to the work “Arquivo Público”, developed by Diogo Correia and Ricardo Campos.

“Arquivo Público” is a web application focused on the contents published on the Público newspaper website over time and preserved by Arquivo.pt.

As a result, we have a web interface that allows the visualization of archived news about a specific subject and also the representation of the number of news, most frequent terms and geographical reference.

Honorable Mention granted by Público newspaper

The Público newspaper, official partner of the 5th edition of the Arquivo.pt Award, granted an Honorable Mention to the work “Arquivo Público”, carried out by Diogo Correia and Ricardo Campos.

Municipality of Sines and Arquivo.pt together on the International Archives Day

thumbnail-sines-dia-internacional-dos-arquivos

Last updated on June 27th, 2022 at 08:40 am

The Municipal Archive of the Municipality of Sines and Arquivo.pt celebrated the International Archives Day, June 9, at the Salão Nobre dos Paços do Concelho, with a Workshop on preserving the digital memory of Sines (Portugal).

The meeting was broadcast online with the aim of sharing with the community of archivists what has been an experience of collaborative curation of Web content.

Collaboration between a municipal archive and a web archive

This meeting took place in the continuity of a collaboration between the two teams developed during the pandemic period.

The Arquivo Municipal de Sines made a selective and systematic collection of Web content related to the Municipality of Sines, with the collaboration of local media, such as Rádio Miróbriga and Rádio Sines.

In turn, Arquivo.pt contributed with training on tools, like Webrecorder.net, that records in standardized format and prepared useful services, such as SavePageNow that allows to record pages on the fly directly on Arquivo.pt.

Local history is better with preserved Web pages

From this collaboration resulted the preservation of thousands of Web pages (about 200 Gigabytes of information) about the experience of the pandemic in the geographical area of Sines and Santiago do Cacém.

The copies of the Web Archive Files (WARCs) sent to Arquivo.pt have been integrated to become available.

Presentations

Cryptocurrencies and web curation on the 15th anniversary in Viseu

Last updated on June 24th, 2022 at 08:37 pm

Session of Arquivo.pt at the Jornadas 2022

Arquivo.pt was at the annual meeting Jornadas de Computação Científica 2022, held from May 31st to June 2nd, at the Instituto Politécnico de Viseu.

Cryptocurrencies and web curation were the starting point for sharing the news of the service and talking about the work developed since the last edition of the Jornadas.

Zapping session remembered the 15 years of Arquivo.pt

Arquivo.pt was created in 2007 with the goal of collecting the Portuguese Web. After fifteen years it continues its mission, collecting, but mainly facilitating the access to preserved contents, both for the researcher and the common citizen.

In the Zapping session at the conference, in which each FCCN service presented its services, the Arquivo.pt was highlighted for its long-standing activity in Web preservation.

Training with the Library of the Escola Superior de Tecnologia e Gestão

The Arquivo.pt team was in the Library of the School of Technology and Management (ESTGV) in an extra session of the conference dedicated to digital preservation, mainly to institutional content published on the Web.

The training was promoted by the Library team, especially Dr. Rosa Silva, Coordinator of the service, and had the participation of the community. Besides the presentations, there was an opportunity to share ideas and point out future collaborations.

Paulo Medeiros, responsible for the service of Culture, Communication and Documentation, presented the institutional channels of the Instituto Politécnico de Viseu. These channels are increasingly present on the Web, such as the magazine Polistécnica that went digital in 2012, the scientific journal Millenium and the video channel Politécnico TV.

Arquivo.pt showed how any person or institution can have their Web contents preserved in an adequate format. To save contents directly on Arquivo.pt you can use the new SavePageNow recording service. To make a local Web archive you can use ArchiveWeb.page – Webrecorder.net.

Arquivo.pt APIs presented to Internet technologies students

The Arquivo team was in the classroom, thanks to the excellent welcome given by Prof. Dr. Valter Alves, director of the Design and Multimedia Technology course. Vasco Rato, Web developer of the Arquivo.pt, presented the APIs of the Arquivo.pt (Applications Programming Interfaces) for the automatic processing of preserved information.

By using the APIs of Arquivo.pt the students can make assignments for the technology subjects and compete to the Arquivo.pt Award.
