Lucia Orlando - UCSC, Gov Docs, work on CA.gov, local and regional info captures not much recently, but want to get back in that groove
Brainstorm on goals for the CKG, future meeting topics
EM: List looks good.
JL: Collaborative collection development.
LO: Collaboration, also in the context of Archive-It for managing subscriptions, maybe de-duping collections/comparing seedlists? Open to collaborative initiatives.
EM: Topical collaboration could be good. For example, sci-fi physical collections, agriculture collections (at UCR: citrus for inland empire). (LO: notes gov based ag reports are part of UCSC colls) a unified portal could be useful.
KS: Cobweb is a collaborative collection development tool that CDL, UCLA, and Harvard are developing together - it's great to hear about the potential for identifying collecting topics we may have in common or in complement that could serve as the basis for collaboration. ACTION: KS stand up a "snapshot" table on the wiki to document current campus collection strengths and aspirations, as well as tools they use, expertise, staffing (where, who, students?), whether they're doing social media archiving?
LO: This could help with identifying gaps, collection focus that we're missing.
Possible future agenda topic: What could a built out web archiving program look like?
PB: Sharing knowledge/expertise with tools, also social media tools and indexing/data mining. Can tools tell us nature of content as crawling?
EM: Social media archiving at UCR: Bergis Jules UCR University Archivist collecting/curating tweet datasets via DocNow tool. NB: social media archiving is different from traditional web archiving.
JC: UCLA does some social media archiving, international in scope and using Archive-It.
KS, PB to share on Cobweb at a future meeting. JL, LO, KS to share CA.gov at a future meeting.
Review Web Archiving CKG charter
EM: 2. Key expectations - maybe not call out a specific tool (Archive-It), call out several "including...". If add social media, call out the distinctions between the two (for example: https://gwu-libraries.github.io/sfm-ui/posts/2017-12-13-web-social-media-archiving).
ACTION: KS to share out the charter as google doc so that folks can comment/edit before the next meeting
Administrivia (membership, communication channels, regular meeting time, etc.)
ACTION: KS to firm up membership roster and set up listserv.
Meet again in 2-3 weeks - tentatively on 7/19. Thursdays at 10am are good for those on the call today, need to confirm with the others who weren't able to make it.
|5 minutes||Next steps||For the next meeting: 1) Add entry for your campus in the "snapshot" table and 2) Review/comment on/edit the WACKG charter.|
