        Subject: Request for Participation in a Qualitative Study, on Engagement with Web Archives 

Opportunities, Challenges, and Potentialities for Engagement with Web Archives

Dear all,

First, to introduce myself, my name is Sharon Healy and I am a PhD candidate in
Digital Humanities at Maynooth University, Ireland. My research focuses on
bridging the gap between the creation of web archives and the use of the
archived web for current and future research.

As part of my PhD project, I will be conducting a qualitative study, with the
purpose of examining and analysing the opportunities, challenges, and
potentialities for engagement with web archives and archived web content from
different perspectives. The study will entail conducting interviews (audio or
email) with participants who are Users and Non-users of web archives, but also
participants who are cultural heritage professionals (such as librarians,
archivists, digital curators, web archivists, etc.).

More information about the study is available here:


I would greatly appreciate if you would consider sharing the link to the study
with colleagues and students who might have some interest to participate. The
study is voluntary and participants may withdraw at any time during the research

Many thanks for your time, and please feel free to contact me should you require
any more information about the study.

Best Regards

Sharon Healy
