Log Number: RE-250048-OLS-21

Old Dominion University will plan and establish a graduate certificate in web archiving. The web touches all aspects of human discourse. In order to train professionals in the nexus of the technology so they can develop and capture it, understand the theory of its organization and stewardship, and learn how to assert its authenticity and integrity, the project team will collaborate to create a four-class graduate certificate in web archiving theory and practice. The project will develop an environmental scan documenting industry, university, and governmental organizations’ needs for employees with experience in web archiving; materials for a graduate-level course in the technology, theory, and ethics of web archiving; and a lessons learned report of experiences working in a multidisciplinary team to deliver graduate and professional education that integrates library science, archival science, computer science, and cybersecurity.
