That is the potential of the Internet Archive Wayback Machine (IAWM), a free web-based tool that provides access to hundreds of billions of archived web pages dating from 1997 to present.
In this webinar, Presenter Nicholas Taylor will:
- Provide background on what IAWM is, how it works, and the scope of content to which it provides access;
- Walk through IAWM features that are useful for the discovery of specific information or web content;
- Review strategies and trends for authentication and admissibility of IAWM evidence in U.S. federal courts; and
- Explain critical differences in the behavior of archived websites accessible through IAWM and “live” websites.
Nicholas Taylor provides expert witness services related to evidence produced from the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, other web archive repositories, and public websites. He is commonly engaged to help determine when particular information or web content may have been published, updated, available, or discoverable on the web, as well as to authenticate and interpret archived web content for evidentiary purposes.
His regular full-time employment is as the Deputy Group Leader for Technology Strategy and Services at the Los Alamos National Laboratory Research Library. In this role, he oversees IT research and development efforts focused on digital repository services, applied information science, and system operations.
Prior to Los Alamos National Laboratory, he managed and supported digital library, digital preservation, library technology, and web archiving programs at Stanford Libraries, the Library of Congress, and the U.S. Supreme Court Library. He possesses an M.A. in Communication, Culture, and Technology from Georgetown University and an M.L.S. from the University of Maryland, College Park.
