The average lifespan of a webpage is 92 days. The content published on the web is not forever, even though we sometimes treat it like it is.

When creating online supplements to your research, whether it's a portal to your data or a curated exploration of your research thesis, it's important design your web project with sustainability in mind. We will discuss tips for data storage, presentation, and structure as well as how to decide what software and hardware to use, highlighting specific resources available to Penn students, faculty, and staff.

This workshop will also offer an introduction to free tools to preserve or "web archive" your online work. As browsers increasingly render tools like Flash and JavaScript obsolete, these web archiving tools will preserve your hard work from becoming a 404 error.

Bringing your own laptop is recommended, but not required.
Registration optional. Feel free to drop in!
