Join librarian Chris Freeland & program lead Jamie Joyce for a reintroduction to Internet Archive’s services and projects of use to the preservation community. In addition to longstanding efforts like The Wayback Machine, Archive-It, and book digitization, presenters will cover new services & programs that Internet Archive has started in recent years. New efforts include our work with resource sharing, supporting rapid response archiving projects (Saving Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Online), Internet Archive Scholar, and Democracy’s Library, a free and open repository of government research and publications. Presenters will also cover the lawsuit against the Internet Archive for lending books through controlled digital lending (CDL), and what the lawsuit means for all libraries and archives.
