Web archiving and crawling….don’t know where the “crawlapalooza” comes in, but it was included in the brief write-up of this presentation in D-Lib’s report on Open Repositories 2007:

Using OAI-PMH Resource Harvesting and MPEG-21 DIDL for Digital Preservation
Joan Smith and Michael Nelson To successfully preserve a web site, its resources must be crawled and the structure and relationships among the resources must be maintained. Joan Smith and Michael Nelson, Old Dominion University, propose involving the web server in the preservation process through “mod_oai”, an Apache module to harvest a web site packaged with its associated metadata thereby contributing to its long-term preservation.

 Look for the presentation to be posted later on the conference website.
