Internet Archive to preserve print

June 7th, 2011 · by spolanka · No Comments

Brewster Kahle posted on the Internet Archive blog this week about plans to preserve print books.  Kahle states, “books are being thrown away, or sometimes packed away, as digitized versions become more available. This is an important time to plan carefully for there is much at stake.”   As a result, they are building a facility to preserve print copies of every book, record, or movie they are able to acquire.  Much more information is in the blog post, including photos of the new facility.
