Internet Archive Needs Us!

At the Internet Archive, we know we can’t preserve the world’s knowledge alone. We will need the public’s help to curate our shared human culture. So we are embarking on a two-year project to build a toolset and user interface that allow communities outside the Archive to save, manage and share their cultural treasures--further democratizing access to all knowledge. Citizen-archivists will be able to build collections, enhance metadata and join like-minded communities in deciding what of our history gets archived and made accessible to everyone, forever, for free.
