Web Archives - Researcher Skills & Tools Survey (WARST)

Dear Colleagues, 

We would be most grateful if you would consider participating in this anonymous survey and sharing this information with colleagues to which you are associated, for their interest to participate also. This research is being carried out by researchers from Maynooth University, the British Library, and the International Internet Preservation Consortium.  

The study kindly seeks participation from archivists, librarians, curators, information managers, scholars, researchers, students, historians, library patrons, and members of the public. The survey aims to identify, and document skills and knowledge required to achieve a range of different research goals within web archiving, and for the use of the archived web for research. Please note, it is equally important to attain participation from respondents who are novice users, as it is to attain responses from regular or experienced users. 

This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to fill out. Completion of the survey is voluntary, and participants can withdraw at any time. If you decide to participate, it is important that you fully understand what is required. Please see attached a copy of the Information Sheet which contains more details about the project, the requirements, and how the data will be collected, managed, and used.
