As galleries, museums, artists, and scholars increasingly engage each other and the world through various online media, art libraries are compelled to steward valuable born-digital records into cohesive, preservable collections. Web archiving--the process of collecting, preserving, and enabling access to web materials--presents a powerful opportunity for art libraries to develop collections of these otherwise ephemeral resources. To realize this potential, the most difficult stage is often simply getting started; the daunting range of possible collecting scopes, policies, technologies, and workflows can stop a web archiving program before it starts.

Attendees to this 2-hour workshop will overcome this obstacle by carefully reviewing options and precedents, drafting short, sample action plan and policy language, and by test-driving the available technologies with Sumitra Duncan and Karl-Rainer Blumenthal, moderators of ARLIS/NA’s Web Archiving SIG. They will come away with succinct implementation plans that specifically articulate their respective institutions’ areas of need; policies towards collecting, rights, and preservation; and itemized budget for web archiving.
