IIPC Announces New Mailing List for Web Curators

The International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) has
established a new mailing list for web curators and other practitioners
interested in sharing information and experiences about web harvesting
issues and associated quality review and archival issues.

The mailing list will focus on curator tools for harvesting web
material, using web archives, working with archived material, and
accessing harvested material. Topics of interest could include:

* Harvesting tools and workflows, including NetarchiveSuite, PANDAS, the
Web Curator Tool, the Web Archiving Service, Archive-It and others;
* How to harvest and review blogs and Wikis, particularly the major
platforms;
* How to harvest and review YouTube and other video content;
* Problems with specific web sites or web pages;
* Problems with particular file formats; and
* Guidance on whether to accept or reject a particular harvest.

The IIPC hopes that contributors will provide practical advice and
solutions that apply to a wide range of tools and situations.

The list is sponsored by the International Internet Preservation
Consortium, moderated by IIPC members, and is a private list open to
anyone who has an interest in web harvesting issues. All interested
parties are invited to subscribe and encouraged to participate.
