The Society of American Archivists Web Archiving Section is hosting a Coffee Chat on December 6, 2022. This session features a talk by Ian Milligan who will discuss the research use of web archives.
Event description from the hosts:
Dr. Ian Milligan will explore some research use cases for web archival data, and explain what we have done in the Archives Unleashed project to try to “unleash” web archival collections for research use.
Ian Milligan is professor of history at the University of Waterloo, where he is also Associate Vice-President, Research Oversight and Analysis. Milligan’s primary research focus is on how historians can use web archives, as well as the impact of digital sources on historical practice more generally. Since 2017, Milligan has been principal investigator of the Archives Unleashed project.
