The following is a guest post by Abbie Grotke, Library of Congress Web Archiving Team Lead, and NDSA Content Working Group Co-Chair
The National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) Content Working Group is sponsoring a survey of organizations in the United States who are actively involved in or planning to archive content from the web. The goal of the survey is to better understand the landscape of web archiving activities in the United States, including what organizations or individuals are archiving, what types of web content are being preserved, the tools and services being used, and what type of access is being provided for researchers.
The information gathered as a part of this survey will be reported to NDSA members and summary results will be shared publicly, with an announcement of the results appearing here on The Signal.
Any United States organization involved in web archiving or in the process of planning a web archive is invited to to take survey. The survey will close October 31, 2011.
