Background of My Research: Mondou Search results by Mondou Related keywords provided by association rule mining Text/Web Mining Mondou 1996 Relevant keywords provided by text mining association rules Document clustering Information visualization Discover web communities Distributed and cooperative web robots
Differences between Search Engine and Web Archive Web Search EngineWeb Archive Crawling Freshness by time stamps and informative file types: html, text, pdf, doc and others Accurate crawling of entire web pages stored in target web sites, as rapid as possible Quality Focusing on special attributes and descriptions: - title, meta, hyperlink tags Quality control is strongly required - Original/Master copies - Archiving shots management Search Recall and Precision Results are sometimes influenced by commerciality. Simple and easy query input Difficulties of document searches - Historical change and heterogeneous keywords - Evolution of hyperlink structures Preservation Short time: several months - Almost of users prefer popular and fresh web pages. Long time: several centuries as paper, micro film etc. - migration, transformation

Various Technical Problems Programs of crawling contents from surface and deep webs provided by dynamic web services emulation and migration of dynamic content Heritrix Collaboration and optimization of distributed systems preserve monotonously increasing digital contents crawling, storages, information retrieval with time-line Wera (Web ARchive Access), OAIS, DSpace etc. Metadata formats URI, RDF, MODS (Metadata Object Description Schema)
Hidden webs and archiving Advanced techniques KQML Mediator Wrapper Association rules Web mining Knowledge and rules derived from Metadata Repository Web summaries Web Servers …… Agents KQML Search Archiving Robots Web Archiving Systems (Metadata, Site Summaries, Frequent navigational patterns, Representative web contents) How do we archive contents stored in hidden webs?
Growth of Storage Market Trend of Storage Volume 10 times in : volume of storage 1370PB (10 times of volume in 2005) Growth rate 56.9%/year IDC Japan Storage Market in Japan Unit:\100M, TB JEITA \13.07M/TB \8.42M/TB \5.02M/TB \2.73M/TB Next DVD:25-30GB 2010 Holographic Disc:200GB-1TB Dell Others Hitachi
Architecture of hierarchical storage First Level Storage (plain files, full text search) Second Level Storage (compressed files, partial indexing) Third Level Storage (archiving multiple-files with compression, low cost devices) Cache Storage prefetch Operational Database of Archiving System (log files of web robots, search queries, navigational patterns)
Guidelines of Metadata
Various Formats and Standards Resource Description Formats MARC 21 formats - Representation and communication of descriptive metadata about information items MARCXML - MARC 21 data in an XML structure MODS (Metadata Object Description Standard) - XML markup for selected metadata from existing MARC 21 records as well as original resource description MADS (Metadata Authority Description Standard) - XML markup for selected authority data from MARC21 records as well as original authority data EAD (Encoded Archival Description) - XML markup designed for encoding finding aids Digital Library Standards METS (Metadata Encoding & Transmission Standard) - Structure for encoding descriptive, administrative, and structural metadata (www.loc.gov/mets) MIX (NISO Metadata for Images in XML) - XML schema for encoding technical data elements required to manage digital image collections PREMIS (Preservation Metadata) - A data dictionary and supporting XML schemas for core preservation metadata needed to support the long-term preservation of digital materials.

Guideline of NDL Meta Data
NDL-DA (NDL-Digital Archive) System is based on OAIS reference model Information Package consists of Content Information Metadata Organizing Unit Bibliography, Volume, Number, Article Web Site, Web pages
OAIS Open Archival Information System Submission Information Package Archival Information Package Dissemination Information Package Descriptive Metadata Is stored separately
NDL: Meta Data Information Package Metadata Preserving contents and associated metadata Description Metadata Bibliography: Title, Publisher, Volume, Number etc. Technical Metadata CPU, Hardware, Operating System, Software etc. Preservation Metadata Long-term preservation: Ingest/Migration history etc. Rights Metadata Permission, Creator, Authority, Audience etc. Control Metadata Other Data for Preservation/Utilization/Management
NDL: Meta Data Information Package Metadata– METS1.6 METS Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard Description Metadata – MODS3.2 and NDL-DA Metadata Scheme MODS3.2 (Metadata Object Description Schema) MODS is a derivative of MARC21, and it is not so complex Technical Metadata– PREMIS based Scheme Preservation Metadata– PREMIS based Scheme Rights Metadata– PREMIS based Scheme PREMIS (PREservation Metadata: Implementation Strategies) View Path is Preservation Layer Model in DIAS (Digital Information Archiving System, Netherland) Control Metadata– NDL-DA Metadata Scheme

Conclusion Web archive is one of dominant information infrastructure in digital information society. Technical problems Distributed crawling, long-term huge storage, advanced IR Social problems Intellectual properties (copyright law, creative commons) Huge volume and long-term preserving Distributed crawling programs Surface and hidden webs, complex web services Huge storage systems using hierarchical architecture Storage media, archiving formats, compression methods and rates Retrieving mechanism: navigational pattern mining in web archive Preserving strategies by importance and access frequencies Effective emulation and migration of dynamic contents
