Web Archives for Historians is building “a collective, crowd-sourced bibliography to bring historians together who are using, thinking about using, or getting interested in web archives.” Contributions to the bibliography may be blog posts or articles or anything in between, and should cover one of the following:
(a) reflections on the need for web preservation, and its current state in different countries and globally as a whole;
(b) how historians could, should or should not use web archives;
(c) examples of actual uses of web archives as primary sources. Work concerned with online representation of the more distant past is also within our scope.
This post was produced through a cooperation between Francesca Giannetti, Elizabeth Lorang, Beth Russell, and Laura Scott (Editors-at-large for the week), Zach Coble (Editor for the week), Sarah Potvin (Site Editor), and Roxanne Shirazi and Caro Pinto (dh+lib Review Editors).
