Abstract

This report, which should be read in conjunction with its companion, “Researcher Engagement with Web Archives: State of the Art” (Dougherty, et al., 2010), looks beyond the current state of web archives, and the uses made of them, to expand on some of the challenges identified there, and to point out some of the important opportunities which exist for funding bodies to add considerable value to the investments made to date, as well as to move web archiving technology and practices to the next level of comprehensiveness and usefulness.

Keywords: Web Archives, Web, Internet, Preservation
