The Community Webs program began in 2017 with a cohort of 27 public libraries and the goal of developing expertise in web archiving and building web-based community history collections. As it comes to an end in 2019, cohort members are able to share their successes, challenges, and lessons learned while developing sustainable programs of mindful community-focused web archive collections. Join Community Webs cohort members in conversation as they discuss their experiences.
