Workshop 1: for historians

Bookings for this event are now closed.


Could you imagine what historical questions you might be able to answer using a comprehensive archive of UK websites for the period 1996 to 2010 ? If so, this workshop may be for you, and bookings are now open.

The workshop affords a unique opportunity to learn about, and shape the development of, a unique new dataset, purchased by the JISC from the Internet Archive, and in the keeping of the British Library.

Where:  British Library (St Pancras, London)
When:  Thursday 24 May,  11am - 3.15pm

Sessions include:
  • Introducing the UK Web Archive 
  • How one historian might use the Domain Dark Archive  [see earlier post for a preview]
  • What is analytical access anyway, and what could it do for me ? 
To book a place, contact the project manager, Dr Peter Webster, at Peter.Webster@sas.ac.uk [or, from May 7, jane.winters@sas.ac.uk], with a brief statement of your research interests.
Booking is free, but places are very limited. Bookings will close at 12 noon on  May 10th, and applicants will hear whether they have secured a place soon afterwards. The event will be most suitable for scholars at doctoral level or higher.
Lunch will be served, and we will also be able to reimburse reasonable travel expenses within the UK.
