Gain insight as speakers examine collaborative approaches to archiving web-based art and architecture resources and learn how each initiative is helping shape the new frontier of art librarianship. As materials are increasingly available as web-exclusive content, creative solutions are required to capture potentially ephemeral resources. Presenters will share actionable insights, representing collaborative web archiving initiatives at Columbia University Libraries, the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC), the Internet Archive, and from within the ARLIS/NA Artists Files Special Interest Group (SIG).

Anna Perricci will detail the challenges faced and progress made in the formation of the Collaborative Architecture, Urbanism, and Sustainability Web Archive (CAUSEWAY). Funded by a multi-year grant fostering collaborative web archiving, CAUSEWAY is a pilot project curated by art and architecture librarians in the Ivies Plus Art and Architecture Group.

The Internet Archive's Jefferson Bailey will focus on strategies for collaboration outside the area of collection development by examining ways that institutions can support and enhance web archiving through joint, coordinated efforts in areas such as research and development, assessment, policy, technical infrastructure, and user services.

As the first National Digital Stewardship Resident embedded in a multi-institutional library collaboration, Karl-Rainer Blumenthal will relay quality assurance and long-term preservation strategies for the web archive collections shared among the partners of the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC).

Anne Simmons will discuss how information, once conveyed solely through paper media, has moved online. This shift has created a crisis for those preserving the documentation of an artist's career. The Artists Files SIG attempts to address these concerns with recent efforts, including an initiative using Archive-It to capture, store, and provide access to artists’ born-digital ephemera.
