Archiving and Citing the Web: Tools for Sustainable Citation of Websites, Web documents, and Media

The web is ephemeral: a website here today can be gone (404 Error not found) tomorrow. How can a scholar cite the web sustainably? This workshop covers tools available through Brown Library as well as other free tools for archiving web pages, web documents, web sites, and media on the web for the purposes of sustainable citation and preservation. Example of tools covered include Brown’s Perma.cc, Wayback Machine and Internet Archive, Webrecorder.io, Critical Commons, and Zotero and topics include web archiving and fair use best practices.
