The Collaborative Art Archive (CARTA) is excited to announce the publication of CARTA: Promoting Computational Research with Art on the Web and CARTA Collection Research Datasets. The whitepaper introduces CARTA’s approach to promoting computational use of web archive collections, and the research datasets are openly available for reuse at archive.org. These datasets were generated with ARCH (Archives Research Compute Hub) from CARTA collections and were used in computational research workshops across North America and Europe.
Art librarians, web archivists, students, and educators gathered at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., last month to explore the data from online art resources computationally at scale. Attendees left the workshop with an understanding of web archive research use cases and how to support them. They learned the processes of creating web archive collections and analyzing them hands-on as data, preparing them to consult with faculty and researchers on the questions that make use of computational methods.
Today, CARTA is excited to launch the CARTA portal – providing unified access to CARTA collections.
Earlier this summer, the Internet Archive announced its partnership with the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC) to form a collaborative, web-based art resources preservation and access initiative. We are now thrilled to announce that the initiative has kicked off with a diverse roster of 24 participating member institutions throughout the United States and Canada.
The Internet Archive, along with the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC), are pleased to announce our project "Consortial Action to Preserve Born-Digital, Web-Based Art History & Culture."
