Digital Resources – Web harvesting and e-Born Content Archiving is a project focused on the harvesting, processing and storing of digital online resources as an integral part of the cultural heritage of the Slovak Republic by building an adequate hardware and application infrastructure for archiving of websites and e-Born (born digital) documents.
National project Digital Resources – Web Harvesting and e-Born Content Archiving is supported by EU structural funds – reference document Operational Programme Informatization of the Society. Implementation: 01. 04. 2015 – 31. 12. 2015 (application development, ICT installation, pilot harvests). Goals of the project are acquisition, processing, trusted storing and making available the original Slovak digital resources: web pages, e-books and e- serials. We focus on documents that are a fragile and threatened part of the intangible cultural heritage due to their intangible nature. Archiving of the slovacical content – websites of .sk domain, foreign web sites that contain Slovak or Slovakia related content or Slovak authors or are otherwise related to Slovakia. Harvest processes are governed by copyright legislation and respect server settings (robots.txt) so that they do not affect sites availability.
