journals have been reinvented on the Web, and entirely new forms of communication like social media continue to develop. Without any doubt, the Web constitutes a significant portion of the world’s documentary heritage. In recognition of this fact, many information institutions have developed Web archiving programs, collecting Web-based materials in addition to papers, records, and other kinds of archival collections. Information professionals have made efforts to archive the Web for almost as long as the Web itself has been around. The Internet Archive (IA), a non

Hugo C. Huurdeman and Jaap Kamps 4 A Collaborative Approach to Research Data Management in a Web Archive Context Abstract: In our times, researchers create and gather their datasets, irrevocably changing from solely “small” to increasingly “big” data. Institutions provide more and more services to manage, store and access this essential research data. However, despite the invaluable services provided by repositories, there is still a mismatch between the myriad of operations carried out by researchers, and the storage services offered by generalized repositories

DOI10.1515/bfp-2012-0014 Web content is, by nature, ephemeral: sites are updated regu- larly and disappear, which involves the loss of unique value information. The importance of this media grows continu- ously in our society and institutions are developing websites with a variety of content creating a large media-centric Web sphere. Like any media, it is essential to preserve it as a key part of our heritage. Keywords: Web archiving; preservation; state of the art

Filip Kruse and Jesper Boserup Thestrup 5 Archiving the Web – a Data Management Perspective Abstract: It is only logical to assume that experiences of the legal deposit of printed material will influence the legal and organizational framework of web archiving. Both printed and web based material are parts of the same national cultural heritage. Legal deposit of print involves traditional actors such as the national libraries and the publishers, all with their traditional interests. But web archiving will involve new actors, with other interests and draw new lines

The new Austrian Media Law became operative in March 2009. This amendment to the law is the legal basis for web archiving and governs the collection of online pub- lications.

can shift their practices to acquiring born-digital materials ( Gilliland ). As intellectual and creative productions are increasingly created digitally, often without analog equivalents such as printouts, the move away from digitization and toward born-digital record-keeping is increasingly necessary if an archive is to document contemporary activity. Born-digital documentation can include photographs, written works, and videos, as well as web archives, emails including newsletters, and activity from social media accounts. This project explores a community archive

This paper builds upon the Economist’s R-word (recession) index by forming a Croatian version of a media news-based economic uncertainty measure. Using the web archives of the four major Croatian news portals (, Jutarnji list, Večernji list and 24 sata), an extensive database of as much as 531107 news articles is formed. The R-word index is obtained by calculating the monthly share of recession-related articles. This way Croatia is placed among the few rare world countries which have their own version of this index. It is found that the index is a leading indicator of economic activity in Croatia, preceding GDP growth rates by two months. Using rolling window correlations, the authors also prove that economic agents react to uncertainty shocks in the most intensive manner precisely at the onset of an economic crisis, while the correlation decreases in periods of more stable economic growth rates.
