Several Issues in Archiving Web Resources

  • Resource identification: Place, authorship, date, authenticity, etc.

  • Preserving the context: Preserve a resource's content, its presentation, and its context. What function did the resource serve then, and what is the purpose of archiving the resource now?

  • Storage and retrieval: Problems of efficient, persistent, sustainable, and easy access to the archived resources.

  • Coping with changes: Dealing with updated content, changing URLs, "the deep Web," obsolete technologies, new standards, etc.
