Archiving websites with Conifer

Building a website is a common way to disseminate digital scholarship, but what happens to these ephemeral websites when the funding runs out, or when researchers move on to other projects? This workshop will introduce participants to web archiving and show them how to use a free tool to ensure that their web content remains accessible and useable. This workshop will be of interest to participants working on projects that have an associated website or any kind of online content that they would like to preserve. This is an introductory-level workshop and no prior knowledge or technical skills are needed. Important note: participants are encouraged to create a free account with Conifer ahead of the workshop: https://conifer.rhizome.org/.

In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • Why web archiving is necessary
  • What the ethical implications of web archiving are
  • How to use Conifer to create an archived copy of a website
