RESAW, a ‘Research Infrastructure for the Study of Archived Web Materials’, is an international network which brings together European national web archives and leading research communities studying the archived web. It aims to:
- bridge the gap between the growing number of web archiving institutions, which hold an increasingly significant part of 21st-century cultural heritage, and a fast developing range of research communities and individual researchers for whom these archived materials are of importance.
- establish a trans-national European research infrastructure with a view to creating easy trans-national virtual access to web archives; a robust, sustainable and dynamic research infrastructure tailored to fit users’ needs; robust network structures for trans-national collaboration; a portfolio of training courses and structures for the exchange of personnel; and well-established collaborations with international stakeholders.
A full list of participants is available on the RESAW website, along with a range of resources for the study of the archived web.
