History


The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization that was founded to build an Internet library. It offers permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format. The archive includes texts, audio, moving images, software as well as archived web pages, and provides specialized services for adaptive reading and information access for people with disabilities.
Developed as part of The Library of Congress's American Memory project, the site contains informative information about what happened on every day of the year. A visit to the site on any given date will lead to archival documents and brief commentaries of happenings about that particular date in history. For instance, the Kennedy-Nixon Debates (which took place on October 21), the premiere of "Hello, Dolly!"(January 16), as well as the 363 other days of the year. The site is quite a treat, and each "Today" contains links to various archival documents that have been offered up online as part of the American Memory project and other Library of Congress digitization initiatives
