Chris Prom provides a Web Archiving Service Evaluation in his Practical E-Records blog using a range of criteria such as usability, scalability, license, support and many others. This is a well-rounded look at the service addressing the questions that people consider as they’re looking for web archiving solutions.
Michael Shallcross provides a thorough evaluation of the University of Michigan’s use of the service in “On the Development of the University of Michigan Web Archives: Archival Principles and Strategies”, part of the Society of American Archivists’ Case Studies series. Michael’s article covers not only their experience with the service itself, but also addresses the policy and procedural aspects of selection and scope for such an archive. This is especially helpful for the many librarians and archivists who are also considering what it means to comprehensively archive an entire web domain such as umich.edu.
