In 2016 LSE Library was tasked, as part of the School’s Knowledge Exchange Strategy, with archiving all official LSE blog outputs. With 56 research blogs, dating back as far as 2007, a significant amount of content had been generated. We came up with an ambitious project to archive this content in our institutional repository, aiming to enrich and extend its existing online metadata to increase visibility and discoverability. We successfully bid for some project funding, and set out to retrospectively archive this research output, which falls outside more traditional publishing channels, alongside seeking to automate key parts of the process in order to make complete archiving feasible and sustainable going forwards.
