New Project: Integrating Archives Unleashed Cloud with Archive-It
Excerpted from a recent story about our new exciting project:
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a $1,084,087 CAD grant to the University of Waterloo to support the “Integrating Archives Unleashed Cloud with Archive-It” project. Led by Professor Ian Milligan, from the University of Waterloo’s Department of History, alongside co-investigators Jimmy Lin, Professor and Cheriton Chair at Waterloo’s Cheriton School of Computer Science, Nick Ruest, Digital Assets Librarian in the Digital Scholarship Infrastructure department of York University Libraries, and Jefferson Bailey, Director of Web Archiving & Data Services at the Internet Archive, this project represents the next stage of the Archives Unleashed Project. With this funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the project hopes to bridge the current gulf between web archiving collection, access, and data-driven analysis.
