In October of 1996, engineers at the the San Francisco-based Internet Archive launched their first web crawlers, taking snapshots of web pages. At the time, the World Wide Web was only 2.5 terabytes in size. In 1996, it was still impossible to predict how large the World Wide Web might become. Even in those early days of the Web, broken links (404 errors) were a growing problem, and it was clear that most Web pages were short-lived. Brewster Kahle and Bruce Gilliat invented a system for...

He named this digital library the Internet Archive.  Its mission: to provide everyone with “Universal Access to All Knowledge.” Using archival footage shot on October 29, 1996 by Marc Weber and Kevin Hughes for the Web History Project, this...

For 50 years, Bob Abramson's House of Oldies- Rare Records, his "little shop on Carmine Street" in New York City was a mecca for record collectors.  The store held more than 250,000 vinyl records. John Lennon, Justin Timberlake, Steve Van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band) and Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin)  have all visited the store over the years. In 2021, Bob decided to close his Greenwich Village shop and move to online sales. It was an enormous move, and a good portion of...

Tina Argumedo grew up in Argentina in the 1930s and she loved to dance. Tango music infused her life, and her 78 rpm record collection was among her most prized possessions.  When Tina moved to the United States to be near her daughter, she left most of her things behind--except her 78s. When Tina died, her family wondered what they should do with these fragile records from the 30s. Then they discovered the Internet Archive's Great 78 Project--an ambitious undertaking to digitize every 78 rpm...

When Paul Lindner's wife Julie died of cancer, he wanted to find the pieces of their life that were recorded somewhere on the Internet. Paul turned to the Internet Archive and its Wayback Machine to track down the ephemera of their digital lives: old postcard, Usenet exchanges, defunct websites. He was able to create a montage of their years together--as a way to remember and to heal.

With your support, we've made great strides over the last 25 years towards universal access to knowledge. However, it’s important that we don’t take this key human right for granted. So to draw attention to the importance of access to knowledge - and the threats it faces - we’re imagining a world without it.  We invite you to get creative: record a video, create an image, tell a story, send out a social post from the year 2046. Share it using the hashtag #IA2046 and tag us at @IA2046 ....

The Rock Historian:   Dawn Eden Goldstein built a career researching and writing the liner notes to CDs. Some famous (Harry Nillson), some obscure (Irma Thomas, the Soul Queen of New Orleans.) As the years passed and CDs were tossed aside, it felt as if only a few physical artifacts of her work would endure. Then she discovered the Internet Archive was digitizing CDs & their covers--high resolution scans of hundreds of thousands of CD covers, including her most precious and obscure works....
