About this Event

Join Research Scientist and Los Alamos National Laboratory Professor, Martin Klein, for a lecture exploring “An Institutional Perspective to Rescue Scholarly Orphans”, and his development efforts in the realm of web archiving, scholarly communication, digital system interoperability, and data management.

Dr. Klein and his team are known for frameworks and standards such as Memento, ResourceSync, Signposting, and Robust Links, and they have shown that without adequate infrastructure, scholarly artifacts will vanish from the web in much the same way that “regular” web resources do. As such, Dr. Klein and his team have devised an institutional pipeline to track, capture, and archive these artifacts. In this talk, Dr. Klein will demonstrate the pipeline and share insights gained by developing and operating it.
