Online Art Ephemera: Web Archiving at the National Museum of Women in the Arts

Subject

Web archiving

Description

Abstract Artist and art subject file collections contain important primary source ephemera for art historical research—but what happens when the ephemera are online? The National Museum of Women in the Arts has been web archiving art-related online ephemera using the Internet Archive's Archive-It since November 2011. This case study presents the considerations and challenges of archiving such types of material and provides a foundation for arts institutions to begin more collaborative web archiving.
