At the Internet Archive, we are building digital libraries of the future. But we can’t do it alone. That’s why we’re creating new tools so you can build libraries with us.

Hands-on Demos:
LISTEN to audio in our new public listening room
PLAY video games from the 1980s
SCAN a book on the next-generation scanner
EXPLORE new tools for TV News, Archive-It and
ENJOY food, wine and presentations of more new stuff

The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library. Its purposes include offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format.

Founded in 1996 and located in San Francisco, the Archive has been receiving data donations from Alexa Internet and others. In late 1999, the organization started to grow to include more well-rounded collections. Now the Internet Archive includes: texts, audio, moving images, and software as well as archived web pages in our collections, and provides specialized services for adaptive reading and information access for the blind and other persons with disabilities.
