This iSkills session will introduce people to web archives and will demonstrate the value they hold for researchers. Web archives equip researchers with a new and largely untapped resource from which to conduct research. They provide unique cultural insights into online and offline societies and can show how websites have transformed over time by providing access to preserved copies of the live web. The session will focus on two prominent UK-based web archives: the UK Web Archive and the Bodleian Libraries’ Web Archive.
Subjects to be covered include:
Intended Audience: Students, researchers, university staff and anyone interested in the subject.
