Please see events for already planned courses.

The course is offered by NetLab, a national digital research infrastructure, and a community under DIGHUMLAB.

The course can be taken only by appointment. There is no fixed date, since the course will be offered as needed on an ongoing basis. If you are interested, please take a further look in the brochure. 

More than 98% of the world’s data are now digital. A large part of the data are represented on the web, where content is added, deleted and edited constantly and worldwide. Web archiving is the preservation of content, and may be done individually, as well as by large-scale web archiving initiatives. Contemporary studies in the humanities and social sciences need to make use of web archives where earlier documents or versions may be retrieved, and to preserve findings on the live web for future analysis and reference.

The Online Course in Web Archives and Web Archiving will provide an opportunity to build an understanding of how and why archived web content differs from analogous material (such as printed books), and to get significant hands-on experience with web archives and web archiving, based on a focus in your own specific research interests.

The course is offered by NetLab, a national digital research infrastructure, and a community under DIGHUMLAB.

The course is free of charge for researchers and Ph.D. students at Aarhus University, Aalborg University, University of Copenhagen, University of Southern Denmark, or The Royal Danish Library.

The course will be offered as needed on an ongoing basis. A course may be arranged individually or for a group (with a maximum of eight participants). Our capacity is limited to offering the course  2-3 times per semester; applications for the course will be treated on a first-come, first-serve basis.

For researchers, it will be possible to get abbreviated versions of the course according to your specific needs.

For the full course, a course certificate will be issued upon completion.

For Ph.D. students, the course is equivalent to a Ph.D. seminar, counting as 3 ECTS.

The course is also avaliable for graduate students, for more information on this please refer to the course brochure below.

If you are interested, please take a further look in the brochure. You are welcome to download and send it to colleagues if you consider gathering people for a group course (miximum limit of eight participants).

The course can be accessed only upon agreement, after contacting us as specified in the brochure.
