    Call for Participation: Advanced Topics in Web Archiving: A Free, Self-Paced Online Training Workshop

    Supported by the IMLS LB21 program, the "Continuing Education to Advance Web Archiving (CEDWARC)" project develops a continuing education curriculum and teaches library and archive professionals advanced web archiving and analysis techniques. We will offer a free, self-paced online training workshop in October 2021.

    The workshop offers advanced training to working library and archive professionals. Students in related fields are also welcome. The training modules are customized to the knowledge and skill levels of the intended audience and can be integrated into their job responsibilities, as well as prepare them for future library and archive service developments.

    Built on the Web Archiving Fundamentals module, participants will be taken on a problem-solving tour through five additional modules, including Storytelling, Social Feed Manager, ArchiveSpark, Archives Unleashed, and Events Archiving. Facilitators of the workshop include web archiving experts and tool developers from Virginia Tech, Los Alamos National Lab, Old Dominion University, George Washington University, the Internet Archive, and the University of Waterloo.

    After watching the online training videos of your choice, workshop registrants may also interact with the module facilitator through one of the two available online office hours scheduled for each module. To conclude the workshop, an online panel discussion/open Q&A session will also be scheduled at the end of October 2021, involving all module facilitators.
