Using Web Archives in Research: An Introduction

Description: The purpose of this book is to gather and make available knowledge about the use of web archives for research. It is written in a Danish context and adapted to the needs of Danish researchers but can also be useful for other researchers. The book serves as the course material for NetLab’s workshops. The structure of the book is therefore inspired by the modules of the NetLab workshops, but it can easily be read independently of the workshops. The book will be continuously updated with relevant new research in web archiving, for which reason it will be made available in several different versions in the longer term.
