Francesca Musiani et Valérie Schafer (coord.) ainsi que les comités et équipes de RESET (Recherches en sciences sociales sur Internet) sont heureux de vous annoncer la parution du numéro 6 de la revue, dont le dossier est consacré à la thématique : Patrimoine et patrimonialisation numériques.
Que nous disent le patrimoine numérique et la patrimonialisation du numérique sur le rapport de nos sociétés à leur patrimoine et au numérique ? Que se passe-t-il quand on ne se contente plus de « numériser » la culture mais qu’elle est « d’emblée numérique » ? Quelles sont les conséquences sur le patrimoine, et sur ses usages – sociaux, culturels, politiques, économiques et scientifiques ?
Disponible en ligne en texte intégral (http://reset.revues.org/770), ce numéro vous invite à découvrir quelques-unes des réponses apportées par les auteurs à ces questionnements, notamment au moyen d’analyses empiriques.

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.
- Abstracts should be no more than 1000 words.
- Full articles should be between 4000 and 7500 words long.
- Short communications should be no more than 3000 words long.
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:
USING WEB ARCHIVES
- Research using web archives
- Tools and approaches
- Initiatives, platforms, and collaborations
- User-driven curation
- Ethical and compliant research use
- Interdisciplinary collaboration
CREATING WEB ARCHIVES
- Harvesting, preservation, and/or access
- Collection development
- Legal and ethical concerns
- Programmatic organization and management
- New/updated tools for any part of the lifecycle
- Application programming interfaces (APIs)
- Current and future landscape
Proposals may be submitted for any of the following formats:
- Individual presentation for a 30-minute session (i.e., 20 minutes for presentation plus 10 minutes for questions);
- Moderated discussion or multi-presentation panel for a 60-minute session;
- Moderated discussion or multi-presentation panel for a 90-minute session; or
- Poster with accompanying lightning talk.
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.
Please submit your proposals using this form. For questions, please e-mail email@example.com.
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.

Reminder of the deadline for the submission of full papers: 31 July 2016
The issue is scheduled for publication in Spring 2017.
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.

How can you study national webs? How are national webs today different from how they were 10 years ago? Is it possible to compare national webs? And what are the IT-related challenges when doing these kinds of studies?
These are some of the questions that will be addressed at a workshop on national webs, organised by the research project ‘The historical development of the Danish web’ (supported by the Danish Ministry of Culture), in collaboration with NetLab, Aarhus University, and the State Library, Denmark
We never experience the entire national web domain when browsing the web but it is always there as a horizon, as the national context of our browsing. Studies of national webs can provide valuable knowledge about the characteristics and use of different nations’ web. Studies of the history of national webs can shed light on the development and the changing patterns and trends within and across national webs. In addition, studying the characteristics of a national web will result in a baseline for other web studies, for instance by making it possible to determine whether a specific website at a given point in time is comparatively large or small, dynamic or static etc. This will be of use when analysing in-depth the web activities that take place within a nation and to which the national web constitutes the backdrop. It will also allow for international comparisons, both current and historical.
Studies of national web domains is an emerging field within web studies, and the workshop aims to bring together scholars, web archivists, curators and IT-developers working within this area in different countries with a view to advancing the field through knowledge exchange and new possibilities for cooperation.
Submissions could include:
- theoretical, methodological or case based studies at the intersection between national web studies and Digital Humanities
- case studies of one or more national webs
- contemporary cases or a historical perspective
- theoretical reflections on studying national webs
- methodological reflections on studying national webs, including discussions about software used for the study.
A selection of the papers from the research workshop will be considered for inclusion in a planned edited volume The Historical Web and Digital Humanities: National Web domains, to be part of a book series about digital research in the Arts and Humanities at an international publisher.
Please send an abstract of up to 300 words to Niels Brügger (firstname.lastname@example.org), head of NetLab, Aarhus University. Abstract submission deadline: 14 August, 2016. Notification of acceptance: 1 September, 2016.
