The public web is a fact checker’s dream, but not everything stays up forever. More than just an invaluable contribution to collective memory, the practice of web crawling, indexing and archiving empowers the research and journalism that is ultimately required to speak truth to power.

This session is designed for:

  • Researchers and fact checkers looking to better understand the Internet Archive
  • Newsrooms that want to build out their archive-sourcing capabilities
  • Resource-poor journalists interested in leveraging the internet’s long memory

  • Speakers

    Mark Graham
    Director, the Wayback Machine, The Internet Archive
