2024 R&I Day

Document Type



Starting in Fall of 2023, Ruth Bryan and Emily Collier began researching sustainability for the Web Archiving Program, which led them to building communication channels with the University of Kentucky Office of Public Relations and Marketing Web Content Development group. By tightening this channel, we hope to initiate the archival mindset right at the moment of content creation, as well as limit gaps in our web archives collection as the PR team is directly involved in monitoring sites that go live and expire. Part of this tightening of communication has been finding ways to automate alerts when changes are made to the uky.edu domain sites. Zapier, an automation tool capable of linking thousands of apps, was investigated as a means of auto-generating Trello cards when new or altered sites are added to a shared Google Sheet in our communal Google Drive for Web Archiving. This presentation discusses the first trial of Zapier and the potential benefits of adding it to workflows.
