Alexandria: The Journal of National and International Library and Information Issues invites submissions for a themed issue on Digital Preservation.
The scale and diversity of digital collections in national memory institutions has grown immensely over the past decades. The challenges of maintaining and preserving these collections for future generations have been recognized and addressed in various forms, and solution maturity at an international level is diverse. To reflect this diversity and share experiences across the international stage, Alexandria is seeking articles on practical implementation models for digital preservation, staffing and embedding digital preservation expertise, holistic and sustainable solutions, and the implications of local, national and collaborative strategies.
A process of double peer review will be applied. Abstracts are due Tuesday 1 November 2016 and the full manuscript for selected articles will be due Friday 31 March 2017. The themed issue will be published in Summer 2017.
Author guidelines are available at https://uk.sagepub.com/en-gb/eur/alexandria/journal202510#submission-guidelines

This themed issue will be edited by Maureen Pennock (Head of Digital Preservation at the British Library) and Libor Coufal (Assistant Director, Digital Preservation at the National Library of Australia). Queries about the suitability of a topic should be addressed in the first instance to the Journal Editor, Monica Blake ( firstname.lastname@example.org), or Assistant Editor, Lyn Robinson ( L.Robinson@city.ac.uk).

Web archiving efforts have now been underway for over twenty years, generating an expanding core of data crucial for present and future explorations of human political, cultural, economic and social activity since the mid 1990s. Practices around both the creation and use of web archives are rapidly evolving. What technical, ethical, and institutional approaches are necessary to advance use of web archives for scholarship and other use cases? How are researchers using the archived web right now, and in which new directions is that research heading? What innovations, collaborations, and adaptations are necessary to sustain the efficacy of web archiving?
The 2017 Web Archiving Conference (WAC), held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC), aims to bring together practitioners, librarians, archivists, historians, humanists, computer scientists, and other parties interested in expanding and harnessing the potential of preserved web heritage.
We welcome proposals on a broad range of topics, including from the following examples:
Proposals may be submitted for any of the following formats:
Time will additionally be reserved in the schedule for the proposal of lightning talks much closer to the event to allow for more timely sharing of recent updates.
The deadline for submissions is 20 October 2016. All submissions will be reviewed by the WAC17 Programme Committee and submitters will be notified by 1 December 2016.

25 years ago, on 6 August 1991, Tim Berners-Lee, posted information about the WorldWideWeb project on the newsgroup (like a message board) alt.hypertext and invited wide collaboration – marking, in one email, the Web’s introduction to the wider world.

Digital media has initiated the transformation of archiving practices with implications for audio-visual archives, written archives and libraries. The substitution of finding aids, including paper cards, by databases is in most instances seen as beneficial and an advance.
However, the digitization of archival holdings poses a lot of questions that have not yet been thoroughly discussed. The physical nature of the sources is no longer an obstacle to their universal accessibility. Is digitization thus leading to the disappearance of the emphatic notion of the archive, because digitized materials are becoming mere elements of the constantly growing and flowing mass of data in electronic circuits? Will digital techniques replace the archive as an institution? Do we have to envision archives without records and without a documentation strategy and documentarists as hackers who build ad hoc collections from randomly commented links?
With regard to broadcast archives, it can be observed that the form and comprehensibility of metadata, access and usage regulations have not kept pace with digitization. How can this asynchrony be dissolved? How can the means of digital technology and the Internet be used to create comprehensible and accessible metadata? How can archives be connected are there historical examples we could learn from?
Articles for this special issue, Archives of the Digital could, for example, address ideas and visions for the reconfiguration of archives, or the epistemology of the archive (and its notions), treat exemplary case studies of (interdisciplinary) practices for the interpretation of archival content, or elaborate on the impact of digitization for scholars working in the archives/with archival holdings.
