Weblog Archiving

Most librarians and archivists have not yet identified blogs as online resources particularly meriting collection and preservation. This is hardly surprising. Web archiving activities in general are still in their infancy, and most of the attention is being paid to Web publications that have characteristics in common with more traditional published material, i.e., ISBNs, ISSNs, regular publishing cycles, and an emphasis on academics, writes Richard Entlich (Cornell) in the RLG DigiNews.

Worth for preservation is e.g. David Mattison’s well known weblog
