  • WARC implementation guidelines v.1

    Clément Oury, Bibliothèque nationale de France (National Library of France)


    Since May 15, 2009, memory institutions and other digital archiving organizations can use a standardized way to store and preserve documents harvested from the web: the WARC file format, officially released as ISO 28500:2009. The objective of this document is to gather advice and  best practice to help institutions designing and creating WARC files for collection management, access, preservation, and interoperability with collections from different institutions.
