Title: Trust and the Web: Can the Audit Checklist be Applied to Web Archives?

An increasing number of National Libraries and similar institutions are building Web archives: collections of materials representing their national or cultural documentary heritage as it is expressed in the online environment. The practice of Web archiving usually involves a harvest model, rather than a deposit model, and poses a number of documentation and validation issues that impact on a Web archive's ability to comply with the RLG/NARA audit checklist for Trusted Digital Repositories. This presentation explores some of these issues and proposes some ways in which the checklist may be applied in the Web archiving context.
