Digital historie og arkiveret web som historisk kilde

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Within the last decade the amount of digitally stored data has exploded, and in the same period of time the amount of born-digital material is growing, such as content on social media and the web. Future historians must ind their way through a source landscape in which more and more sources become digital, and in many cases digital only. This article argues that all digital sources are not alike just because they are digital which leads to a distinction between digitised, born- digital and reborn-digital sources. Then follows an introduction to one speci ic type of reborn-digital material, the archived web, that is compared to digitalised newspaper archives. Finally, it is discussed what the consequences are of the specific characteristics of the archived web for its use as a historical source.
