ARLIS/NA Annual Meeting 2016
March 9, 2016 - Web Archiving SIG Meeting at ARLIS/NA + VRA
The ARLIS/NA Web Archiving Special Interest Group met for the first time at Natural Connections, the third joint conference of ARLIS/NA and the Visual Resources Association (VRA), in Seattle, WA. About two dozen art librarians and affiliated professionals joined to hear a brief introduction of web archiving, introduce themselves and their use cases or interests in the practice, receive news from the Internet Archive, and share lessons from established web archiving programs. The open discussion portion of this initial meeting was broad-ranging, but frequently returned to shared interests in the problems posed by intellectual property rights and the appropriate licensing and permissions practices to pursue with gatekeepers and creators of web resources.
