Bodleian iSkills: Introduction to web archives for research use
The Internet has been available since the early 1990s and has been a repository for almost all human thought. It is, however, a highly ephemeral resource with websites in regular change and frequent deletion. A web archive attempts to capture, preserve, and give access to archived websites at regular intervals. This session will introduce web archives and their potential for academic research at all levels.

By the end of the session you will have an introductory overview of the potential of web archives (and the UK Web Archive in particular) for academic research.
