Building Web Archiving Collaborations to Save [More of] the Web
Following the establishment of the web collecting program at Columbia University, multiple web archiving collaborations are taking shape within four project areas with the support of a three year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Through multifaceted approaches to collaborative web archiving we are actively engaging with four categories of stakeholders: colleagues at other research libraries, software developers, website creators and users or potential users of web archives. This work has been led by project staff responsible for web archiving and project management with supervision from a steering committee for web collecting at Columbia University Libraries. So far approximately fifty people across eleven institutions have been involved as selectors for pilot collections and six teams have received funds to support the development of better web archiving tools. This short paper will briefly detail the work completed from early 2013 through mid-April 2015 on these collaborative projects then introduce some points for next steps and further discussion.
