Our IT team has been working on the implementation of NAS 5 and they installed a complete preproduction environment (connected to CWeb) of NAS 5.3. They run several tests and checked that some problems we had been experienced with NAS 4 (especially related to security certificates) have been solved with NAS 5.
We’ve been also concentrated in curating our Catalan Politics collection, which was a thematic collection, but it’s indeed a mixture of thematic and event collection. We decided to keep it as it previously was (a thematic collection), but adding new seeds, launching it more frequently and tuning some configurations.
We finally made access available to our web archive at the beginning of July. The online access only allows seeing what captures we have from every site, but the archived content itself is only accessible in our premises and the ones at the regional libraries with legal deposit competencies. Some of them have opened also this access to their users. It is not allowed to download or copy any part of the web archive, due to our copyright law limitations.
We are also preparing our annual workshop with regional web curators, scheduled for November 20th, to review the state of the art of our collaborative project of web archiving and non-print legal deposit.
