Joint Information Systems Committee Report, August 2010

Abstract:     
In this report, we summarize the state of the art of web archiving in relationship to researchers and research needs. This is a different focus than much of the earlier work in this area, including the JISC PoWR report which focused on institutional strategies for archiving web resources (JISC, 2008). It is important to note that this report focuses on the uses and needs of individual researchers. Research groups are also important, as some of the challenges that face individual researchers can quickly spiral into deeply complex tangles when dealing with collaboratories. For instance, national selection policies and national copyright rules can stand in the way of international projects, even if there are sound academic reasons to pursue international collaboration. While these issues are addressed here when appropriate, the bulk of the report focuses on individual researchers and institutions.
