Web archives for researchers

Charles van den Heuvel (Huygens-ING) and Sally Wyatt were involved in a research project about what web archives mean for researchers. The research was funded by JISC (the UK equivalent to SURF) and done together with colleagues from the Oxford Internet Institute. The reports have been completed and are available online:
