WAS Under the Hood: How Web Archives Work – Nov 16 Webinar

The Web Archiving Service ( enables librarians, archivists and researchers to capture websites, and to build and publish web archives.

Join us Wednesday November 16th at 9 am Pacific for a webinar on the technologies behind the Web Archiving Service.

You don’t need to know how web archives work in order to build one, but sometimes it helps to understand what’s going on behind the scenes.  We’ll look at the basics of how the web crawler works, how archives are organized, and how public access works.  This session will help you understand why you get certain capture results, and may help you make more efficient capture setting choices.
