Broad crawl

We postpone our first broad crawl for 2020 for having time to “clean up” after the last broad crawl for 2019 and for having time for a rigorous preparation of the next crawl.

Event crawl?

We almost were getting a new “Cartoon Crisis”, as a cartoonist from Jyllandsposten designed a Chinese flag with Corona virus instead of yellow stars. We kept an eye on what would happen and finally we decided, that we could do with a special crawl on foreign media reactions, just to supply our regular selective news media crawls.


We have big trouble with the performance of our replay tools

  • Viewerproxy: no https support
  • Citrix Wayback: much to slow
  • Open Wayback: an upgrade to IIPC’s new 2.4 release might help
  • Blacklight (full text search): not all of the facets are applicable

Hopefully we soon will get developer help to solved legal issues so we can implement SolR Wayback.

We are finalizing a new application form for access to Netarchive. At the same time we work on a new modernized procedure for access, not least in consideration of GDPR
