Records Management and Web Archiving: RMRT, WebArch join forces for next Virtual Hangout

Please join the Society of American Archivists’ Records Management Roundtable (RMRT) and Web Archiving Roundtable (WebArch) for Intersections of Records Management and Web Archiving– the next installment of our Virtual Hangout series, airing Wednesday, July 9th at 1:30 pm EDT.

Christie Peterson, Records Management Archivist at Johns Hopkins University, and Jessica Meyerson, Maryrose Hightower-Coyle, and Jenn Coast from the University of Texas at Austin will be discussing their efforts to integrate web archiving with records management. 

Peterson will be on hand to talk about her involvement in a project to increase historic knowledge and current documentation of student life which incorporated web archiving to capture the records of student activity and involvement at her institution. See Christie’s recent Schedule blog post for a preview.

Meyerson, Hightower-Coyle, and Coast will discuss their experience developing a cross-departmental working group to create a strategy for preserving their institutional domain and its many subdomains. Their working group includes members from Information Technology Services (ITS), Records Management, University Archives, University Libraries, and University Communications.

We’ll start with an overview of both projects, and then dive into a moderated question and answer session.

As always, we’ll be accepting questions for our speakers from you. If you have a question or topic for discussion please leave it as a comment on this post.

Archiving Email will be broadcast live via the RMRT’s YouTube channel. We’ll also update The Schedule with links to the archived YouTube video.
