The model of web archiving at New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC
NYARC consists of the research libraries and archives of three leading art museums in New York: The Frick Collection, Brooklyn Museum, and MoMA. Web archiving is performed through Archive-It software and is aimed at making up 10 collections, thematic and institution-based. It is important to ‘harvest’ online content in order to capture the shifts in the production of content, to preserve unique interactive content that exists only online, and to provide a bibliographic record.
On the example of archiving online content at moma.org the challenges of this process are outlined: capturing flash content and the problem of automated capture, which is very often inadequate, so for research purposes, it is important that a human performs the archiving.
