We are looking for colleagues who are interested in joining an initiative for building a transnational research infrastructure for the study of web materials archived in national and similar general web archives.
We are interested in three different types of response:
Please respond if you are interested in any of these options no later than 10 October 2012.
The proposal is developed in collaboration with DARIAH (dariah.eu) and NetLab (netlab.dk), which is a part of the Danish research infrastructure DIGHUMLAB (dighumlab.dk). The collaborations between the Danish internet archive netarkivet.dk (a joint venture between The Royal Library, Copenhagen and The State Library, Aarhus) and the research community at The Centre for Internet Research, Aarhus University, Denmark have developed gradually since 2000 initiated by a Pilot Project on archiving the municipal elections in Denmark in 2001. The collaboration today continues within the Danish DIGHUMLAB project which includes the establishing of the NetLab research infrastructure.
We are looking for possible partners based on close collaboration between archival institutions and scholarly communities.
