Web Archives

"Sorpréndanos con una frase rompedora"

Why archive a website?The web is dynamic, ever-changing and constantly being updated. Although this is one of the advantages of the internet, it also means that much web content is often deleted or replaced with new content, invloving the disappearance of valuable information."This media is pervasive in our society and certainly today one of it most important representation. From presidential elections to music festivals, every event is an opportunity to create, update or close a website. However, like any other media (publications, audiovisual, music), it is essential to preserve Web content, which has a cultural value. According to this view, Web archiving question should be viewed in the perspective of heritage preservation."
