The Internet Archive, the World's Largest Library
October 25, 2001 - The world's largest library, the Internet Archive, has
just been launched with the idea of creating a free and permanent Internet
library available to researchers, historians, scholars and the general
public. Users will be able to access 10 billion web pages dating back to
1996 when the concept of the project originated. The site was designed to
support libraries role "to preserve society's cultural artifacts and to
provide access to them. If libraries are to continue to foster education
and scholarship in this era of digital technology, it's essential for them
to extend those functions into the digital world". More
