Episode #7 of “More Podcast, Less Process”, the archives podcast co-produced by METRO and AVPreserve, is now available for streaming and download. This week’s episode is “humans.txt.mp3 : The Web Archivists Are Present” with guests Alex Thurman (Web Resources Collection Coordinator, Columbia University Libraries) and Lily Pregill (Project Coordinator & Systems Manager, New York Art Resources Consortium). Web archiving and the tools available for doing it have made a lot of advancements of late, but there are still a number of gaps in our capabilities and challenging policy decisions institutions must make when undertaking archiving one’s own website or sites from the web at large. Alex and Lily are leaders within their organizations in overcoming these challenges, and with co-hosts Josh and Jefferson they delve into the many issues faced and solutions derived.
