The Internet Archive #givingtuesday @internetarchive
The Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library offering millions of free books, movies, & audio files, plus billions of saved web pages in the Wayback Machine. There is a 2-for-1 donations match: a $10 gift turns into $30 for the Internet Archive –
The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, the print disabled, and the general public. Our mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge.
We began in 1996 by archiving the Internet itself, a medium that was just beginning to grow in use. Like newspapers, the content published on the web was ephemeral – but unlike newspapers, no one was saving it. Today we have 25+ years of web history accessible through the Wayback Machine and we work with 750+ library and other partners through our Archive-It program to identify important web pages.
As our web archive grew, so did our commitment to providing digital versions of other published works.
We’ve used The Internet Archive for reference, storing an archive of The Prince Floppy, fighting off patent trolls, all sorts of things, it’s a national treasure 🙂
On November 30, 2021, we come together and join a worldwide celebration of generosity. GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together through generosity in all its forms by sharing acts of kindness and giving their voice, time, money, goods, and advocacy to support communities and causes. More about Giving Tuesday on their site, Twitter, tagged Tweets, FaceBook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Wikipedia.
