  • 279 billion web pages
  • 11 million books and texts
  • 4 million audio recordings (including 160,000 live concerts)
  • 3 million videos (including 1 million Television News programs)
  • 1 million images
  • 100,000 software programs
  • About The Internet Archive

    “The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit library. Founded in 1996, our mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge. We collect published works and make them available in digital formats. We are building a public library that can serve anyone in the world with access to the Internet.

    We began in 1996 by archiving the Internet itself, a medium that was just beginning to grow in use. Like newspapers, the content published on the web was ephemeral – but unlike newspapers, no one was saving it. Today we have 20+ years of web history accessible through the Wayback Machine and we work with 450+ library and other partners through our Archive-It program to identify important web pages.”
