Background: The Web-at-Risk project is one of eight digital preservation projects funded in 2004 by the Library of Congress. The project is a 3-year collaborative effort of the California Digital Library, the University of North Texas (UNT), and New York University. The project will develop a Web Archiving Service that enables curators to build, store, and manage collections of web-published materials in distributed repositories located at the three project partner sites. The project will also produce tools and guidelines to assist curators and other information professionals with collection development for web archives. In support of this effort five focus groups were held in 2005. The purpose of the focus groups was to elicit the needs and issues librarians, curators, and end-users have in relation to web archives. This document summarizes the discussion held on October 17, 2005 at the Federal Depository Library Conference in Washington, DC. The one and one-half hour discussion was facilitated by the Assessment Analyst for the Web-at-Risk project.
