Group 1: "Would you join us?"

Discussion of the idea of creating a new "affiliate" status, how to reach out to partners outside the institutional sphere (tech companies, individual researchers)

Group 2: "Collaborative collections"

How can we build on the strong member engagement demonstrated by our IIPC collaborative collections (Olympics, WWI Commemoration, European Refugee Crisis)? Should IIPC make collaborative collection building one of its core activities in order to support longer-term collection development planning and collaborative momentum? How can we promote access to and use of these collections?

Group 3: "Are we a community?"

How to transition from a top-down institutional consortium towards a bottom-up community empowered by its members? How can IIPC help its members identify potential partners with the same agenda and build new things? How to encourage the membership to take the lead on small projects with concrete deliverables? How can events such as webinars or hackathons contribute to engaging the membership?

International Internet Preservation Consortium

The IIPC  is a membership organization dedicated to improving the tools, standards and best practices of web archiving while promoting international collaboration and the broad access and use of web archives for research and cultural heritage. Web archiving is the process of gathering up data that has been published on the World Wide Web, storing it, ensuring the data is preserved in an archive, and making the collected data available for future research. The WARC archival standard, the Heritrix crawler, and the WARC analytic tools are all products of IIPC working groups and projects and initiatives, and they make up the standard tools for archival web capture around the world.
