As members of the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC), Hanzo Archives is pleased to remind doctoral students of the organisation’s grant for funding a 3-year, web archiving doctoral support award.The application deadline is February 15, 2012 with the award announcement taking place on April 1, 2012.
The recipient of this award will study within the University of North Texas College of Information on the specific academic track of current and future web archiving technology and use under the university’s Interdisciplinary Information Science Ph.D. Program.
As web archivists, we at Hanzo are excited to see this recognition of web archiving as a viable component in the study of information science on a doctoral level. With the Internet’s inherent lack of memory, we feel it’s crucial for anyone conducting business on the web to recognize its value as a resource. It’s why we founded Hanzo in the first place.
Needless to say, we look forward to reaping the contributions this program makes to the web archiving industry and Consortium at large.
Details about the program, admission requirements, and how to apply may be found here on the IIPC website.
