At the 50th Annual ARLIS/NA Conference in Chicago last year, Collaborative ART Archive (CARTA) members coordinated a panel session discussing this collaborative project to capture and preserve at-risk web-based art materials. Since then, our project has accomplished major milestones including: expanding the collaborative entity to include nearly 40 organizations throughout North America; establishing a web collection of nearly 700 web-based art resources totaling over 7 TB of data with continued growth; and building a reference resource and public access portal to increase access and research using the web collections. This panel will provide updates on project accomplishments and the continued roadmap for future work and activities. Panelists will: give a brief overview of the project and its mission, highlighting member use cases on topics including the importance of digital preservation and the necessity of a model that leverages shared infrastructure, expertise and collecting activities amongst art libraries to scale the extent of web-published, born-digital materials preserved and accessible for art scholarship and research; discuss recent research use cases using the web collections, the development of the public access portal, and the findings from several collaborative data analysis workshops; and discuss sustainability planning to continue growth and success for the project.
