Belgium doesn't currently have a web archive. Without a web archive a significant portion of Belgian history will be lost forever. The aim of the PROMISE project is:

  • identify current best practices in web-archiving and apply them to the Belgian context
  • pilot Belgian web-archiving
  • pilot access (and use) of the pilot Belgian web archive for scientific research
  • make recommendations for a sustainable web-archiving service for Belgium.

As part of the project, an online survey was launched to help understand the requirements and needs of (potential) users of web archives. This presentation will report back on the results of the survey and outline the next steps in the project.
