Josh Schneider has a new assignment as Web Archivist for Stanford Libraries
Stanford Libraries has been engaged in web archiving for over a decade with an emphasis on collecting the “.stanford.edu” and federal, state and local government domains and has determined that we need to have a more strategic and purposeful initiative. Accordingly Special Collections has reassigned Josh Schneider from his current role as Assistant University Archivist, to this new role as Stanford’s first full time Web Archivist.
Over the last few months, University Archives has processed many collections of former and current Stanford professors’ papers. The Scott Hubbard Papers and William C. Dement Papers are just two of the many collections we’ve processed, but they personally stuck out to me due to the wealth of their research opportunities.
