Memento: Adding Time to the Web

Dr. Robert Sanderson, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and visiting scholar at the Graduate School of Library & Information Science for 2009-2010, will present his work on Memento, a technical framework for adding a temporal dimension to web browsing to allow users to access web resources not only as they exist now but also as they existed in the past.  After describing the overall system, the talk will focus on the metadata requirements for the TimeMap API that compliant web archives can expose in order to publish their holdings.
