CARL-ABRC (Canadian Association of Research Libraries) featured Brewster Kahle at the 2022 Canadian Web Archiving Symposium. Woo HOO! Founder of the Internet Archive in 1996, Brewster is a digital librarian, computer engineer, Internet entrepreneur, advocate of universal access to all knowledge, and an intelligent, articulate individual. I’d listen to him any day – any how.
He began the discussion with “Web archiving is a community practice”…..and was eager to talk not just about what those involved in Canadian web archiving are focusing on – but how he can help “figure out” how best to secure, use – and reuse digital collections. “How do we catalogue these?” he asked. Brewster Kahle is fascinating, and whether or not you are involved in content curation or digital archiving, if you are in the information sector I encourage you to listen to this discussion. Thank you @CARLABRC!
