IWAW 2007

The International Web Archiving Workshop was held at JCDL this year (normally it's held at ECDL). Our research group at ODU was well represented with 3 presentations. I presented our new Warrick queueing system called Brass (slides are available here). This was the second time I attended, the first time being in Vienna 2005.

There were some excellent presentations by a number of people including the Internet Archive, UNC, CDL, and others. One that I found really interesting was about Preserving 2008 Presidential Election Videos (work from VidArch) where they have been archiving YouTube videos using their TubeKit. Overall I really enjoyed the workshop and hope to attend again.

I'll be heading home tomorrow!
