This month, one year after the beginning of the Covid-19 epidemic, the BnF organizes an event, around the Web Archives, in order to increase the visibility of the content harvested on this subject. A virtual guided tour, made up of about fifteen themes, will be published on March 17, on our Internet Archives. This date represents the anniversary of the first lockdown in France. A slide show will come with this tour and be published on the BnF website.

This week, we are also launching our first in-house harvesting workshop of the year 2021. The purpose is to carry out improvements to the harvest of websites with flash animations. We aim to study a way to automate the harvest of these websites, as much as possible.

Lastly, within the framework of the development of an offer of services for researchers, the BnF Data Lab, we are going to launch, this week, a selective crawl as part of the BodyCapital research program. Its object of study is the audiovisual representations of the body in the twentieth century, up to the birth of YouTube in 2005. So the common project that has been defined is to archive, preserve and document these audiovisual representations of the body on the internet.



  • This week we are working in a special harvesting about women’s day and we have created a form which people can collaborate with web sites about this subject by Twitter
  • We start testing SolrWayback like access tool
  • We are studying upgrade NAS from 5.4.2 to a new version
