Abstract:
This presentation will introduce some of the basic characteristics of archived web, compared to digital collections and with this as a stepping stone some of the consequences for the scholarly use of archived web are debated. Then follows a brief introduction to the Danish national research infrastructure for internet studies, NetLab, as well as to the European network of RESAW (http://resaw.eu/), an acronym for ‘A Research infrastructure for the Study of Archived Web materials’, which is a collaboration between leading European web archives, including the Portuguese Web Archive, and research communities studying the archives. Finally, a newly started research project is briefly introduced, namely ‘Probing a Nation’s Web Domain: the Development of the Danish Web 2005-2015’
