Web Archive Blog & Discussion

Did you know the team behind the Wayback Machine has a blog?

Web Archiving at archive.org

The blog's regular Open Threads are now the recommended place for questions, feedback, and discussion about the Wayback Machine or Internet Archive general web archive.

K-12 Web Archiving Program

If you were a K12 student which websites would you want to save for future generations? What would you want people to look at 50 or even 500 years from now?

These questions are central to the K12 Web Archiving Program, a partnership between the Internet Archive and the Library of Congress. Now after two years, involving 18 schools from 15 states around the country, this innovative program provides a new perspective on saving history and culture, allowing students to actively participate and make decisions about what website content will be saved. The decisions they make help them to develop an awareness of how the Web content they choose will become primary sources for future historians studying our lives.

Access the collections archived by students in the program.

Apply now to be a part of year three of this exciting program! Applications are due July 2 and can be found here.
