Webrecorder Does It Again

A few months ago, I wrote about my continued adventures in web-archiving our initiative’s first publication, Enchanting the Desert. I won’t repeat the details here, but essentially I came to the conclusion that Rhizome’s Webrecorder was the best tool for that job. It was able to capture some of the dynamic JavaScript that wasn’t being

A Symposium of Our Own

It will be another week before we can fully process and report out on what was a truly informative and productive last few days. Over the past several weeks we’ve been organizing and planning for the Preservation at Stanford University Press Workshop which was held May 14-15 at Stanford University. We brought together many of

IIPC Panel Accepted

The IIPC has accepted a panel proposed by Jasmine Mulliken, Anna Perricci, and Sumitra Duncan for inclusion in its 2018 Web Archiving Conference program. While the program has yet to be released, we are excited to be part of what promises to be a dynamic and productive conversation. The conference will take place in Wellington,

supDigital Goes to LDCX 2018

In fact, there’s a lot to be said

AHA, MLA, and 2018

2018 is already off to a busy start for supDigital. We covered a couple different conferences last week and are managing the typical catch-up as we return to the office. The American Historical Association held its conference in Washington, D.C. this year, and I attended a pre-conference THATCamp where I engaged with digital historians working

More on Web Archiving

A few weeks ago I posted an interview with Webrecorder’s Dragan Espenchied in which he detailed the features and uses of the web-archiving tool developed by Rhizome. A fellow Mellon-funded project, Webrecorder has been especially intriguing to us because it is perhaps the most specifically focused solution to providing readers of our web-based interactive scholarly
