National Libraries: National Library of Ireland Launches Largest Web Archiving Project to Date
From the National Library of Ireland:
The National Library of Ireland has issued a call to members of the public to nominate websites which they believe best record Irish life in 2016 and remember the events of 1916 by answering the following questions:
- What website do you feel best remembers the events of 1916?
- What website do you feel best records Irish life in 2016?
‘Remembering 1916, Recording 2016’ is the NLI’s largest web archiving project to date and is part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme. The project is part of NLI 2016, the commemorative programme in the National Library, and is supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.
The NLI has been carrying out selective and thematic web archiving since 2011, aimed at ensuring a permanent record is kept of websites of cultural and historical importance.
