The Archiving web resources conference (9-11, 2004) is the first of its kind to be held in Australia. It will bring together creators, practitioners and decision makers from key institutions around the world. It will identify the issues the cultural heritage sector faces in providing on-going access to nationally significant web resources and will highlight what is being done to address these. Major web archiving programs and research projects will be presented.
An Information Day will be held in association with the conference on November 12 at which new web archiving tools and methodologies will be shown. Details are available on the conference web site.
The conference would appeal to anyone with an interest in preserving Australia's cultural heritage in online form - for instance, policy makers, publishers, creators, researchers, funding bodies, information technology developers, and collecting institutions. The issues that will be explored have broad relevance. The emphasis will be on policy, strategy and approaches rather than on technical detail.
