Dear all.

Hereby a brief update on recent Netarchive activities:

·         Paraliamentary elections event crawl: the longer the prime minister waits with announcing the coming parliamentary elections the better we can prepare for the crawl. At the moment we are intensifying the preparation of crawling Facebook profiles (we both will crawl the web versions and the mobile versions – with the mobile version we can capture the comments) and twitter profiles.

·         Potential new event crawl: Aarhus is going to be cultural capital in 2017. A researcher proposed an event crawl. We monitor the living web: will there be enough extra activity that justifies an event crawl?

·         Statistics: We have two statistic working groups: one for the ISO statistics and one for the 10th anniversary statistics. Namely the last one is preparing material which is suitable for posters (graphical presentation)

Subject: [Netarchivesuite-curator] April update from KB/SB

Dear all.
Better late than never – hereby the update from KB/SB:

·         We stopped our event crawls on the Copenhagen shooting.  Potential ongoing activities will be captured by our selective crawls.

·         We finished our first broad crawl for 2015: we archived about 38,5 TB at all, which is about 10 TB more than our budget. We are discussing new strategies for our broad crawls.

·         We are collecting the results of our wayback fulltext search tests (both curators and users have tested)

·         Rumors are saying, that the parliamentary elections will be announced shortly after the queens 75th birthday (16th April), so we are ready to give our event crawl another boost.

·         Otherwise, business as usual :)
Have a nice week!
