Abstract: This thesis explores weblogs and, for purposes of comparison, their paper near-equivalent, the personal diary. The analysis demonstrates the values that weblogs hold as potential archival records, in and of themselves and in comparison to their diary “equivalents,” and then suggests appraisal concepts and strategies for archivists in collecting weblogs. The emphasis of this study is on women’s diaries and weblogs, and gender analysis is incorporated into the discussion.
