The Internet Archive and the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC) invite applicants for Exploring web archives as data: An introduction to data analysis and instruction. The daylong workshop will be hosted by the National Gallery of Art Library in Washington, DC, on July 25, 2023, preceding ARCHIVES*RECORDS 2023.


Every day, significant cultural production occurs globally across the web. As a medium that can be both the repository for records and a form of record itself, the web presents challenges of scale and complexity for those that seek to preserve modern history and integrate it in research and teaching.

Participants in this workshop will learn web archive research use cases, how to create archival research collections from the web, and how to analyze web archive collection data computationally. They will gain hands-on experience using the Internet Archive’s software services Archive-It and ARCH, and widely supported tools for cultural data exploration and visualization.
