  • Still almost finished with the updated JWAT for validation of Warc-files - awaiting builf for JAVA8

  • Quite a few enquiries form researchers on our Facebook-content. We have a lot of old content, but curated new content is very sparse. There´s no good way to get Facebook content, cause our account will be recognized as a robot quickly, when using browsertrix cloud eg.. and blocked or logged out. We are testing the limits with browser-profiles in Browsertrix cloud and logged-in crawling of Facebook - and it´s possible, but scoping will be important. 

  • NAS 7.4.3 in production

  • SolrWayback updated 4 days ago -


The 2022 broad crawl has been launched on October 11th. According to our estimates, the harvest should reach a total size contained between 145 and 150 TB. It should last 5 and a half weeks and end between the middle and the end of November.

We plan to launch a final Video crawl this month. The departments of the BnF have been appealed to propose new selections. 243 selections were added between September 19th and October 27th and we are going to run our size estimates on 313 Youtube channels never collected at that time.

The last crawl of the IIPC War in Ukraine collaborative collection ended on November 3rd. Two others had been previously launched on September 22nd and July 26th respectively. A total of 964.4 GB of data have been collected for 1055 seeds selected by around thirty institutions.



On October 5th we held the workshop on non-print legal deposit and web archiving in the framework of the legal deposit working group of ABINIA (Association of Ibero-American States for the Development of National Libraries of Ibero-America). 13 countries and more than 40 people attended the whorshop, it was interesting to exchange ideas on non-print legal deposit and web archiving and the problems they have to carry it out, mainly legislation, staff and resources. Countries like Chile, Peru and Colombia want to start archiving the web, all are considering NetarchiveSuit as a possibility.

The .gal domain has been harvested last month. A broad crawl of the regional domain of Galicia with a total of 6,525 domains and 285 GB.
