The promise of web-archiving in Belgium

01.06.2018 - 13:00 to 14:00

Park Room (level +2), 1 pm - 2 pm.


The project Preserving Online Multiple Information: towards a Belgian strategy (PROMISE) started on 1 June 2017 and aims to develop a federal strategy for the preservation of the Belgian web.

During this two-year project a research team will draft a selection policy for the websites that need to be archived, propose a legal framework to determine the roles and responsibilities of the State Archives and the Royal Library of Belgium and develop a prototype web-archive that will be tested and evaluated by a panel of users.

During this science talk, the researchers will present their progress on these topics.
