Peter Chan

Web Archivist

I work closely with Stanford librarians, archivists, and curators across all library units, including metadata specialists and other technical staff, to identify, collect, remediate, and describe web content for discovery, access and preservation. Stanford is an active participant in the international web archiving community and collaborates closely with other web archiving institutions on the development of tools, technologies, and collaborative collection efforts. I work with colleagues to advance the library’s web archiving efforts and provide guidance, oversight and support for web archiving across the Humanities, Area Studies, Social Sciences, Sciences, and Engineering collections at Stanford.
