The Internet Archive celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary

The San Francisco Internet Archive celebrates the 25th anniversary of preserving the Internet, television, and radio.

The US Digital Library currently stores more than 70 petabytes of data, including 475 billion web pages, 28 million book and text scans, and 14 million audio recordings.

To date, the Internet Archive has collected the works of more than 100 million people. Brewster Carly, founder of the American Digital Library, said the organization's goal is to reach 1 billion people.

Carly wrote, "This year is a historic year for us as it marks our 25th anniversary." Now, more than ever, we need your help to keep collecting, saving and exchanging numbers. Cultural relics. We currently have a matching gift event that can increase your support for this valuable resource.

"We have gone from a small restoration project to a huge library serving millions of people every year," he added. Our work has impacted the lives of many users who value free and open access to information. The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization, and that was important from the start because it worked for the benefit of the people. His motives must be transparent. It must take a long time. As a result, we do not charge for access, sell user data or advertise, even though we provide free resources to citizens around the world.

Kaley warns that libraries may face very different challenges in the next 25 years.

"Maybe we haven't achieved universal access to all knowledge," he said. But we can do it anyway. In the coming decades, we will be able to save the writings of a billion people. Most importantly, we can have platforms and systems guided by altruism rather than advertising models. We could have a world with many winners, where people can participate, learn and find new communities. I think we can shape this future together.

The Internet Archive is the world's largest digital library and preserves the history of radio, television and radio on the Internet. It is currently raising legal challenges with four major publishers due to its ability to borrow a digital copy of the book rather than a physical copy. The Electronic Frontier Foundation assists with legal defense.
