Session 502 - Untangling the Web: Diverse Experiences with Access from the Web Archiving Trenches

Archivists face many challenges when providing access to archived website and social media materials. In this session, a diverse group of eleven archival professionals from corporate, religious, academic, and national archives; an art reference library; and a web archiving organization share their experiences in providing access to these materials. Topics include: who is accessing the materials, how we are providing access, the role of web analytics, options such as visualization, and the challenge of multilingual materials.
