Web Archiving in the United States: A 2017 Survey

Description: From October 2 to November 20, 2017, a working group of individuals representing multiple NDSA member institutions and interest groups conducted a survey of organizations in the United States actively involved in, or planning to start, programs to archive content from the Web. This effort builds upon and extends a broader effort begun in three earlier surveys, which the NDSA Web Archiving Survey working group has conducted since 2011.The goal of these surveys is to better understand the landscape of Web archiving activities in the United States by investigating the organizations involved; the history and scope of their Web archiving programs; the types of Web content being preserved; the tools and services being used; access and discovery services being offered; and overall policies related to Web archiving programs. The responses from this survey document the current state of U.S. Web archiving initiatives and the comparison with the results of the 2011, 2013, and 2016 surveys enables an analysis of emerging trends. This report describes the current state of the field, tracks the evolution of the field over the last few years, and points to future opportunities and developments.

Open Digital Preservation Training and Professional Development Opportunities

Description: Interest in digital preservation training and professional development opportunities is extensive, however, a common understanding of the open materials – ones that are freely available for use online – and how they might be used most effectively is still limited. The digital preservation community, those who shepherd digital collections through the lifecycle for a variety of organizations, would benefit from a common understanding of freely available open training materials. Digital preservation continuing education is valuable to a number of organization types, from small to large, as well as a wide range of practitioners at various points in their careers. Museums, libraries, and archives of all sizes benefit greatly from freely available continuing educational materials on digital preservation topics, as do many other organizations with an interest in preserving digital content for future use. Frequently, learners new to the profession are uncertain as to where to acquire specific digital preservation knowledge, issues, and skills. Similarly, working professionals may need to expand their roles or desire to broaden their knowledge and skill-set. Training to meet these needs necessarily occurs outside of formal educational settings, relying on the learner’s ability to locate resources that are relevant to their goals. It is the purpose of this report to begin establishing a common understanding of the types of open digital preservation training materials available, to identify topics around which additional materials should be developed, and recommend ways to increase the effectiveness, use, and reuse of open training materials.
