A happy new year and best wishes to all for 2019 from the BnF web archiving team!
Over the past 4 months, a team of 2 developpers, 4 project members and a user group of 4 curators has been working on developping new frontoffice and backoffice functionalites for BCweb. The version 6.1 of BCweb is soon to be released (in January). One of the key features of this version will be a new functionality to check existing records, enabling the curators to easily monitor and fix invalid and redirected URLs. Administrators will also have a backoffice import functionality to bulk create records. More is to come in the next version which will include an improved graphic design. A release note for the NAS community is being prepared. The code will be made available to the BCweb/NAS community (uploaded to the Git repository). The next three iterations of this scrum-based development project will focus on making BCweb data available for use by other BnF applications, using webservices.
