If a researcher currently wants to use web archives at scale, they need to be a significant focus of their research. In this paper, Ian Milligan explores how we are developing tools to lower these access barriers so that a historian could use web history data without a significant investment of time.


This publication starts by briefly introducing the prehistory of the researcher network WARCnet, ’Web ARChive studies network researching web domains and events’. Then follows an overview of the network, including a network analysis of the relations between network participants, and an outline of the planned network activities. The publication is rounded off by an epilogue.
