Web Archiving Policies and Practice in the U.S.

On May 10-11, 2012, Columbia University Libraries convened a meeting of US institutions engaged in harvesting and archiving web content, to explore high-level programmatic issues of objectives, scope, policies and methods for this work. The meeting was called Web Archiving Policies and Practices in the U.S.

This summit discussion among US web archiving institutions touched on the need for more web archiving tool development, informing CUL's subsequent proposal to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Web Resources Archiving Collaboration.
