Offering practical guidance to information management professionals seeking to implement web archiving programs, this book is essential reading for those who need to collect and preserve specific elements of the web, from national domains or individual subject areas to an organization's own website. This second edition has been updated to cover key developments such as advances in the archiving and analysis of social media, the challenges and opportunities of mobile technology and Linked Open Data, recognition of the vast potential of web archives to support research, and the adoption of web archiving in the commercial world to support regulatory compliance. Brown also addresses such important topics as
  • the development of web archiving, with added case studies from the British Library, TNA, Eastern Europe and Asia;
  • selection policies, including discussion of new types of content to archive;
  • automatic crawl definition and refinement, similarities and differences between library, archive and museum approaches to web archiving, and other preservation issues;
  • delivery to users, with new case studies for web archives, journalism and media use, education, academic research data, linked data and government transparency;
  • legislation, with a look at the new copyright regulations; and
  • how to manage a web archiving program, with added discussion of a wider commercial market for web archiving services.
