On 23–24 November 2021, the National Széchényi Library is organizing the annual event about archiving web content. The fifth ‘404 Not Found – Who will preserve the Internet?’ conference and workshop is being organized online via Microsoft Teams, the same way as last year. The event consists of two parts.

On the first day web archive employees from the neighbouring countries will introduce their collections and professional activities, then the collaboration opportunities will be discussed. The presentations of the first day will be delivered in English.

On the second day Hungarian presentations will be taking place about digital preservation, web archiving at the National Széchényi Library, establishing collaborations with Hungarian libraries, RDA-based metadata planning and the WARCNET project, which is focusing on the use of web archives in the field of scientific research. In the following part, Digital Humanities Research Centres will introduce their research projects related to the preservation of ‘born-digital’ materials. Finally, through a concrete example the workflow of archive-friendly transformation of a web portal will be discussed.
