Finally, they will learn how to use available tools to save their websites in a standardized format so that their contents are not lost.

Online archives or archives of the online?

thumbnail_tendencias

At the end of 2020, we recommend some texts that put the future in perspective.

We highlight the theme of preserving online content presented in the ebook “Tendências 2021” (Trends 2021). The contribution of Daniel Gomes, the Arquivo.pt manager, was entitled “Arquivos online ou do online?” (Online archives or archives of the online?).

I was invited to write about the challenges and threats to online archives. The first question that came to me was what is meant by an “online archive”?

My concern lies in the “archives of the online” because there is not even an established awareness about their need, whether at an academic, governmental or individual level.

It is technologically impossible to preserve all information available online. But it is absurd not to be aware that we have to preserve some of the information online for short, medium and long term access.

The complete text (in Portuguese) is available at pages 23 to 26 of the open-access book “Tendências 2021”.

The challenge is to cultivate awareness about the importance of preserving content online by learning how to do it in practice.

Happy New Year!

Webinar Web Archiving in academic libraries

Preservation- workflow

Web archiving process

“Curation of preserved websites – how it works” was the subject of the webinar promoted by  Associação Portuguesa de Bibliotecários, Arquivistas e Documentalistas (APBAD, Lisbon), the Portuguese association of librarians, past October 9, and presented by Ricardo Basílio, librarian and digital curator at Arquivo.pt.

Gathering the online memory of the Universities

The hands-on presentation showed how anyone, even a non-TI expert, can adequately capture, store and replay a website or a social page of an institutional website. Basílio also gave specific examples on how to gather and share collections of institutional contents previously published on the Web: a list, an exhibition, a recovery of a past content to be published on Twitter or Facebook, etc.

A librarian can be a curator of websites

Human and qualitative evaluation is the focus of the digital curator, even when we use such a proficient tool like Webrecorder. The most important point is to enable librarians to practice micro-archiving and create local collections.
