Lire ce billet sur le blog Web Archives for Historians de Ian Milligan et Peter Webster.
Internet Archive propose un nouveau service qui réjouira les amateurs de tigres bondissants et de dancing babies, et tous ceux pour qui le Web du passé ne se conçoit pas sans une étude de la culture visuelle qui l’accompagnait. Par une recherche par mots-clé s’ouvre la possibilité de retrouver des gifs, et de les recontextualiser en consultant l’archive qui les contenait.

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 ( email@example.com), 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.
