The Value of  Internet Libraries

Libraries are one of societies most valuable institutions. These institutions serve their communities with free access to information resources and serve as historians to record their communities cultural artifacts and history. What happens when your community is the internet?

Internet Libraries strive to preserve digital content that has been created and posted to the internet for research and scholarship. The Internet Archive in collaboration with the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian are working together to make sure these historically significant items do not disappear.
