The Web Curator Tool(WCT) is a globally used workflow management application designed for selective web archiving in digital heritage collecting organisations. Version 2.0 of the WCT is now available on Github. This release is the product of a collaborative development effort started in late 2017 between the National Library of New Zealand (NLNZ) and the National Library of the Netherlands (KB-NL). The new version was previewed during a tutorial at the IIPC Web Archiving Conference on 14 November 2018 at the National Library of New Zealand in Wellington, New Zealand. Ben O’Brien (NLNZ) and Hanna Koppelaar (KB-NL) presented the new features of the WCT (PDF) and showed how to work collaboratively on opposite sides of the world in front of an audience of more than 25 spectators.

One of the objectives in upgrading the WCT, was to raise it to a level where it could keep pace with the requirements of archiving the modern web.
