Do you do research into local or family history, or the politics of your local community?
Are you interested in the work and history of Parliament? If so, there's an opportunity to help shape the future of Parliament's digital archives.
Places are available on a short workshop, to be held at Parliament in London on Friday 23rd September. We'll be exploring the Parliamentary Web Archive, which holds versions of Parliament's websites back to 2009. We'll be exploring how this can help family and local history researchers with their work, and how to make it better.
The Parliamentary Archives are investigating how the Parliamentary Web Archive is used, by whom and for what purposes. The results will be used to inform the ways in which the Parliamentary Archives collect, manage and provide access to the online record of Parliament.
Web archives are collections of historic versions of web pages that can be viewed online as they were when they were collected. The Parliamentary Web Archive has been collecting websites both provided by and relating closely to Parliament since 2009. Browse or search the Parliamentary Web Archive here.
