Current information on AWV Working Group Web Archiving

This website tries to provide answers to various questions on archiving web content to give companies as well as private and public institutions recommendations for archiving websites. The website is based on the work of the AWV Arbeitskreis Webarchivierung (AWV Working Group Web Archiving). The AVW Working Group comprises representatives from political foundations and the German National Library who are particularly suitable for these tasks as they are already dealing with archiving web content in their daily work. Various open questions, e.g. the effects on economy and administration, need clarification. Without clarification of these issues purely web-based processes are not a useful substitute for analog business processes.
