Presentation given by Ed Pinsent, ULCC, at the JISC PoWR workshop 1 (Preservation of Web Resources: Making a Start), given in the Senate House Library, University of London on 27 June 2008.
Greetings, Ed Pinsent here. I work at the University of London Computer Centre where among other things I have been archiving web sites and web pages since 2004. I’m under a contract to do this for the JISC, who want to see project web sites which they funded preserved permanently. They are doing this in the framework of the national UKWAC initiative, an organisation so fascinating it would require three workshops all of its own. But I’m going to talk to you briefly about some aspects of preservation of web resources.
