Problem definition
• Web content acquisition is a critical step in the
process of web archiving;
• If the initial Submission Information Package lacks
completeness and accuracy for any reason (e.g.
missing or invalid web content), the rest of the
preservation processes are rendered useless;
• There is no guarantee that web bots dedicated to
retrieving website content can access and retrieve
it successfully;
• Web bots face increasing difficulties in
harvesting websites.
3
4
• After web harvesting, administrators review
manually the content and endorse or reject the
harvested material.
• Web harvesting is automated while Quality
Assurance (QA) is manual.
• Efforts to deploy crowdsourced techniques to
manage QA provide an indication of how significant
the bottleneck is.
Problem definition
Inspired by our work at
5
There is a need for a method to assess
website archive readiness in order to
support web archiving workflow.
building a blog preservation software platform
http://blogforever.eu
6
1. the introduction of the notion of Website
Archivability,
2. the definition of the Credible Live
Evaluation of Archive Readiness
(CLEAR) method to measure Website
Archivability
3. ArchiveReady.com, a web application
which implements the proposed method.
Our Contributions
7
1. Mechanism to improve the quality of web archives.
2. Expand and optimize the knowledge and practices of
web archivists, supporting them in their decision
making, and risk management.
3. Standardize the web aggregation practices of web
archives, especially QA.
4. Foster good practices in web development, make
sites more amenable to harvesting, ingesting, and
preserving.
5. Raise awareness among web professionals regarding
preservation.
Our Aims
Website
Archivability ?
What is
Website Archivability captures the core aspects
of a website crucial in diagnosing whether it has
the potentiality to be archived with
completeness and accuracy.
Attention! it must not be confused with website
dependability, reliability, availability, safety, security, survivability,
maintainability.
CLEAR: A Credible Live Method to Evaluate
Website Archivability
• An approach to producing on-the-fly measurement
of Website Archivability,
• Web archives communicate with target websites via
standard HTTP,
• Information such as file types, content and transfer
errors could be used to support archival decisions,
• We combine this kind of information with an
evaluation of the website's compliance with
recognised practices in digital curation,
• We generate a credible score representing the
archivability of target websites.

11
Website attributes evaluated using CLEAR
12
C L E A R
• The method can be summarised as follows:
1. Perform specific Evaluations on Website
Attributes,
2. In order to calculate each Archivability Facet’s
score,
• Scores range from (0 – 100%),
• Not all evaluations are equal, if an important
evaluation fails, score = 0, if a minor
evaluation fails, score = 50%
3. Producing the final Website Archivability as the
sum all Facets’ scores.
Accessibility
13
Accessibility
• A website is considered accessible only if web
crawlers are able to visit its home page, traverse its
content and retrieve it via standard HTTP requests.

Cohesion
16
Cohesion
• Relevant to:
• Efficient operation of web crawlers,
• Management of dependancies with digital
curation.
• If files constituting a single website are dispersed
across different web locations, the acquisition and
ingest is likely to risk suffering if one or more web
locations fail.
• Changes that occur outside the website are not
going to affect it if it does not use 3rd party
resources.

Metadata
• The adequate
provision of metadata
has been a
continuing concern
within digital curation.
• The lack of metadata
impairs the archive’s
ability to
manage, organise, re
trieve and interact
with content
effectively.

Performance
Performance is an important aspect of web archiving.
The throughput of data acquisition of a web spider
directly affects the number and complexity of web
resources it is able to process.

Standards Compliance
• Compliance with standards is a recurring theme in
digital curation practices. It is recommended that for
digital resources to be preserved they need to be
represented in known and transparent standards.

Impact
30
1. Web professionals
- evaluate the archivability of their websites
in an easy but thorough way,
- become aware of web preservation concepts,
- embrace preservation-friendly practices.
2. Web archive operators
- make informed decisions on archiving websites,
- perform large scale website evaluations with ease,
- automate web archiving Quality Assurance,
- minimise wasted resources on problematic websites.
31
Limitations & Future Work
1. Not optimal to treat all Archivability Facets as equal.
2. Evaluating a single website page, based on the
assumption that web pages from the same website
share the same components and standards.
Sampling would be necessary.
3. Certain classes and specific types of errors create
lesser or greater obstacles to website acquisition
and ingest than others. The method needs to be
enhanced to reflect this differential valuing of error
classes and types.

Editor's Notes

  1. Abstract: Web archiving is crucial to ensure that cultural, scientificand social heritage on the web remains accessible and usableover time. A key aspect of the web archiving process is opti-mal data extraction from target websites. This procedure isdifficult for such reasons as, website complexity, plethora ofunderlying technologies and ultimately the open-ended na-ture of the web. The purpose of this work is to establishthe notion of Website Archivability (WA) and to introducethe Credible Live Evaluation of Archive Readiness (CLEAR)method to measureWA for any website. Website Archivabil-ity captures the core aspects of a website crucial in diagnos-ing whether it has the potentiality to be archived with com-pleteness and accuracy. An appreciation of the archivabilityof a web site should provide archivists with a valuable toolwhen assessing the possibilities of archiving material and in-fluence web design professionals to consider the implicationsof their design decisions on the likelihood could be archived.A prototype application, archiveready.com, has been estab-lished to demonstrate the viabiity of the proposed methodfor assessing Website Archivability.
  2. Dirty data -> useless systemAs websites become more sophisticated and complex, the difficulties that web bots face in harvesting them increase.For instance, some web bots have limited abilities to process GIS les, dynamic web content, or streaming media [16]. Toovercome these obstacles, standards have been developed to make websites more amenable to harvesting by web bots.Two examples are the Sitemaps.xml and Robots.txt protocols. Such protocols are not used universally.
  3. According to the web archiving process followed by the National Library of New Zealand, after performing the harvests, the operators review and endorse or reject the harvested material; accepted material is then deposited in the repository.WCT supports such web archiving processes as permissions, job scheduling, harvesting, quality review, and the collection ofdescriptive metadata. Focusing on quality review, when a harvest is complete, the harvest result is saved in the digital asset store, and the Target Instance is saved in the Harvested state. The next step is for the Target Instance Owner to Quality Review the harvest. WCT operators perform this task manually.E.g. IIPC has organized a Crowdsourcing workshop which included a QA task
  4. Website archivability must not be confused with website dependability, the former refers to the ability to archive a website while the latter is a system property that integrates such attributes as reliability, availability, safety, security, survivability and maintainability[1].
  5. The concept of CLEAR emerged from our current research in web preservation in the context of the BlogForever project which involves weblog harvesting and archiving. Our work revealed the need for a method to assess website archive readiness in order to support web archiving workflows.
  6. Cohesion is tested on three levels:• examining how many hosts are employed in relation to the location of referenced media content,• examining how many hosts are employed in relation to supporting resources (e.g. robots.txt, sitemap.xml,and javascripts),• examining the number of times proprietary software or plugins are referenced.
  7. Already contacted by the following institutionsThe Internet Archive,University of Manchester,Columbia University Libraries,Society of California Archivists General Assembly,Old Dominion University, Virginia, USA,Digital Archivists in Netherlands.
  8. For instance Metadata breadth and depth might be critical for a particular web archiving research task andtherefore in establishing the archivability score for a particular site the user may which to instantiate this thinking incalculating the overall score. A next step will be to introduce a mechanism to allow the user to weight each Archivability Facet to reflect specific objectives.One way to address these concerns might be to apply an ap-proach similar to normalized discounted cummulative gain(NDCG) in information retrieval49: for example, a user canrank the questions/errors to prioritise them for each facet.The basic archivability score can be adjusted to penalise theoutcome when the website does not meet the higher rankedcriteria. Further experimentation with the tool will lead toa richer understanding of new directions in automation inweb archiving.
