Itza Carbajal: Web archivability: A pathway towards dialogue

Itza Carbajal

Itza Carbajal of New Orleans, Louisiana, is an information studies scholar at the University of Texas in Austin. Her research paper examines web archivability, the measurement of how easily a website’s components — including structure, presentation, content and functionality — can be saved for future access and use. It proposes the “incorporation of the concept of web archivability in discussions,” and touches on “issues surrounding the concept of web archivability including the notions behind web archivability, a brief history of online news, the differences between web archive stakeholders and a brief discussion on current web archivability implementations.”
