Detailed Programme

Introducing the Memento Tracer Framework for scalable high-quality web archiving

Martin Klein (Los Alamos National Laboratory) and Herbert Van De Sompel (DANS)

Web archiving at scale and with high-quality is not a trivial endeavor. Given the dynamic nature of the web and the increasingly complex features incorporated into web pages, sophisticated capturing and archiving approaches are needed. This workshop introduces the novel Memento Tracer Framework and invites attendees to a hands-on experience with our framework that was designed to track, capture, and archive scholarly artifacts. Memento Tracer takes an institutional perspective and focuses on artifacts created by or relevant to individual communities. Workshop participants will learn about scalable and high-quality web archiving and leave with the satisfaction of having actively contributed to saving parts of the (scholarly) web.
